including notes, emails etc.”
Town Administrator Lafond Response March 20, 2007
office has no written correspondence or paperwork responsive to your
public records request”
LaFond response PR request 3-19-07
This reply leaves no doubt that Rick
LaFond lied to avoid disclosing the information.
On February 14, 2007 Jack Hunter
wrote a letter of resignation addressed to Rick Lafond. Hunter
admits to being the author of the letter. The letter surfaced in the
late Spring of 2007 from an anonymous source.
Hunter Resignation Letter.
When confronted by the Supervisor of
Public Records office about the letter LaFond denied receiving. Lafond
stated that Mr. Hunter did not recall giving a copy of his resignation
letter his boss (Rick LaFond). We don’t believe either of them.

LaFond also neglected to release a
copy of an email he sent to Frank Casey, Jack Angley, Jim Grimes and
Michael O’Donnell at 12:02 PM the same day. Click on the link's below
to see the four separate responses. You can determine which are lies.
LaFond admits to deleting these emails without disclosing their
Deleting email correspondence
“raises serious records management concerns” according to the
Secretary of States Office. The more serious concern in Carver has to
do with the truthfulness of his response to these inquiries. If he

Response to Public Record's Request
LaFond is not the only one lying
about these records. Frank Casey and Jack Angley received the
following request on June 28, 2007.
I am requesting that I be
provided a copy of the
resignation letter of Jack F. Hunter and any other documents or
correspondence either electronic or hard copy pertaining to his
resignation. Please include communication from yourself and
communications to or from Mr. Hunter or Town Administrator LaFond
concerning this issue:
Angleys reply July 5, 2007
“I have never had in my
possession, or seen a letter or copy of a letter of resignation, of
Jack hunter or any other documents or correspondence, electronic or
otherwise, pertaining to his resignation. In fact I have never had
any communication with him or Mr. LaFond or anybody concerning this
Sorry Jack. We have
proof that you were included in the February 14, 2007 12:02 PM
email from LaFond and the February 16, 2007 8:32 AM response from
LaFond. Since you never had communication with him or LaFond or
anybody concerning this issue you must have learned about the
resignation from the newspaper.
Selectmen Frank Caseys reply on July
never saw a resignation letter…I was appraised of it verbally”
Sorry Frank. We also
have proof that you were included in the February 14, 2007 12:02
PM email from LaFond and the February 16, 2007 8:32 AM response from
LaFond. If Grimes and O’Donnell got the resignation letter in
their Town Files why were you and Angley not also copied.
Selectmen Grimes & O’Donnell July 9 &
July 10, 2007
Selectmen Grimes and
O’Donnell got the same public records request and responded accurately
and truthfully stating they got the resignation from the “Selectmen’s
Folder in the Town Administrators office.” They also disclosed email
correspondence in their possession. They provided copies of all the
requested correspondences. Why is it that Selectmen Angley, Selectmen
Casey and Administrator LaFond alone have faulty memories?
