William Trimble ,Selectman Dartmouth , Massachusetts

Did the residents of Dartmouth Massachusetts elect a former convicted felon to the position of Selectman ?

Court records show this individual with a very serious charge against him in 2000 ?

This selectman just sat on a board which made a decision to take property rights from residents around a commercial wind turbine site.

The media has responsibility to tell the general public about these people and their backgrounds !

This individual is a public figure , we need answers to these questions !

Was there a plea bargain resulting in probation ? Is he a convicted felon ?

Here is the news article :

Funny how people like this are always telling others how they should live their lives! Trimble is always smiling. Old sayings go: "Never trust a man who smiles all the time".

Wind turbine permit appeal lawsuit

Some residents have filed a lawsuit appealing the special permit granted for two wind turbines in town. I have scanned the suit and uploaded it here. The suit seeks to have the grant of a special permit annulled. The crux of the suit seems to be that the Select Board cannot issue a permit in this case because they are the executive board of the town as well as the special permit granting authority. The arguments seem to be pretty scattershot to me, at one point claiming the Select Board ceded their authority to the Alternative Energy Committee ...

... and in another that the Select Board exceeded their authority by issuing the permit. Other claims include harm to the abutters, lack of proper notification, and that the bylaw set up a flawed process for approval.
You can read the suit yourself at this link
