More Lies From LaFond

Town Administrator Richard Lafond responding to a public records appeal by Roderick Forester told District Attorney Tim Cruz that he mailed a response to Forester on April 23. Forester denied receiving the letter and has challenged Lafond in a letter to Chairman of the Board of Selectmen Jack Angley. Angley denied several requests by Forrester to bring the matter before Selectmen either in public or executive (non public) sessions. Angley continues to abuse his authority as Chair of the Board of Selectmen using his guidelines for citizens participation to suppress allegations of impropriety.  

Administrator LaFond offered no proof that the letter was sent other than his word. LaFond has previously provided false and inaccurate responses to authorities charged with enforcing the public records law. In a previous letter the supervisor of public records stated that the deletion of email correspondence by Lafond “raises serious records management concerns”. The issue facing LaFond this time is his failure to properly document an alleged public records response and the truthfulness of the response itself. This is another instance of serious records management concerns. As always our Town Administrator operates in the shadows of compliance. It is his responsibility as a manager to properly document his reply to Mr. Forrester. Rick LaFond is using managerial incompetence to avoid responsibility for not responding to Mr. Forresters request as required by law. Lafond also stated on the record that he never received Jack Hunters resignation letter. When the letter surfaced it was addressed to Rick LaFond and copied to both Mike ODonnell and Jim Grimes in their normal town hall correspondence. His denial in the matter of the Hunter resignation letter was simply not believable and it is not believable that a letter mailed from Town Hall on April 23 has yet to arrive in South Carver.

The public records and open meeting law contains a presumption that local officials are acting in good faith. Rick LaFonds previous documented lies prove that he is not entitled to the benefits conferred by this presumption. Carver receives millions of dollars in tax payments in the mail every year without incident. The US Mail is one of the few services provided by the government that is consistent and reliable. In this instance only one person can be telling the truth. It is the reliability and truthfulness of Rick LaFond that is in question not the reliability of the US Mail or the truthfulness of Mr. Forrester.

As always FixCarver.com is pleased to provide the original correspondence.
