Ty. I stand corrected. Good job on covering this issue, btw. Was the question ever answered as to when Jamie filed his retirement papers? Just wondering.

well folks, the plot thickens. we learned today that Mr. K is on "leave of absence" from his job. It is unclear it if is paid leave or permanent leave, but it is still a leave. This raises the question as to when he was put on leave [before or after the election] and whether his leave triggered Jamie to "consider" retirement after 27 years [which seems to be an odd number of years to retire]. So folks, would be nice to known when Mr. K went on "leave," when Jamie decided to actually retire [as opposed to informing the board] and whether Mr. K asked Jamie to retire. I also wonder if Jamie was working under contract or year to year, and if he was working under contract, what were the terms. food for thought.

Lol. I have nothing to do who politics in glenvie as I also know Jaimie and I am familiar with mr k. He used to hang out in Amsterdam btw. I doubt that me me k was ignorant of Jamie's retirement plans. Bit please attend re forum and ask me me k directly when he knew Ask him when did Jamie file his retirement papers. Ask him if the town budgeted for Jamie's retirement. In other words follow the money. And please do not slander me with a political handle. I could care less about politics in glenville. And someone who questions what is going on is not a political operative. To accuse someone of that is to insult people who honestly question the bs coming out of the tog.

you are missing the point fnb05. The point isn;t whether there is money being saved. the point is when did Mr. k know about jamie;s retirement. Why did mr. k wait UNTIL after the election to announce he wanted a billion dollar raise. that is my point, FNB05, not partisan politics. If you canlt see that as an issue, then perhaps you need refresh your understanding of the word "hoodwinked." Because hoodwinked is what happened here. My point fnb05 is that Mr. k knew about jamie;s retirement prior to the election and rather than mention before the election he was going to take the job fulltime [which no doubt would have no doubt angered voters] he waited until after the election and then professed ignorance about jamie's retirement plans. My point fnb05 is that mr. k is was not ignorant of these plans, that he knew before the election about jamie;s retirement, that he chose NOT TO TELL the public [hoodwinked] about it. I am not calling mr. k a lair , but I think he has no explaining to do. that is wmy point fnbo5. Also, I have no horse in this race. I do not even live in glenville, I do not vote there and I am apolitical. I ma not a political malcontent in other words. I just think Mr. k's answers to the question are weak sauce.

Ha ha ha. Love it that Mr. K believes people who disagree with him are politically aligned malcontents rather than citizens who think what he is doing is truly wrong. Nice spin on it. My guess is the board will pay lip service to the public and offer some nice smoke and mirrors while doing their best to avoid answering the question of when did Mr k know that Jamie was going to retire. Perhaps the public should ask Mr. K when did file his retirement papers with the state. They should at the least ask Jamie when he told Mr. K he planned to leave. It seems to me the town would have had to make some provision in it accounts for jamie's retirement costs. I find it unbelievable no one at town hall knew he was leaving prior to the election. Also if Mr. K had no clue about Jamie's retirement prior to the election, then,well, he seems to be poorly informed about what is going on right under his nose.

Smooth move Mr. K. wait until AFTER the election to tell people u want to get a $50k raise and take over town operations full time. Smooth, indeed. When did u know Jamie planned to retire? Was it well before the election?

wow. and it only took seven weeks for this incident to surface? generally we never hear about cop vs. cop things unless they really, really want to get rid of the cop

if the GOP thought Moot was the weakest link, then they are sadly out of touch with the electorate, based on the guy's strong showing.
