well, i am with Sassy. Let's leave alone the evident troubles of Mr. Keady, and explore the future of Shirley.

The issue now is not Keady (that situation is clear), but where we go from here, and with whom, is the issue. While it is not reasonable to paint our remaining officials with the same brush as Keady, it is just as clear that some of our elected officials and town hall employees demonstrated very poor judgment. One "victim" evidently discovered the planter pen cam, and chose to confront Keady w/ that discovery directly, rather than properly report it.(That camera was ultimately recovered from the victims' home??) Too, evidently, this victim (and another?) was prepared to accompany Keady to his new post in Pepperell. Nevertheless, that same individual is now tapped to participate in our "interim" government? Similarly, despite the evident conflict-of-interest described by Cappucci, two current BOS members were prepared to offer Keady a new contract!(I'll ignore the other specific suggestions in all of these threads - including assault and embezzlement - as hear-say, and i'll also ignore the two priors identified in court, i suppose.) At best, the "interim government" folks rode the wrong horse,and their absence of insight - or maybe just absence of common sense - or at worst their absence of responsibility - does not bode well for our "interim" performance. I say throw 'em all out, and let's start anew. The BOS would do well, & proper, to call a special election. The employer should take some responsibility for hiring the bad-apple, don't you think?

Time to get rid of the bad cops! There needs to be a standard where cops treat everyone the same.

For far tto long the cops have protected these people! The cops are rude to people who do not have connections to the town. The EMTs and fire will even take the stand to lie for cops!

If the problems are not fixed it will be "business as usual". Farrarr, now Keady; who next??? Try and get rid of that woman abusing cop(third in charge). I hope one of these husbands beat the snott out of that pig and hopefully the chief will finally allow it to take place!!!!
oh boy

The cops in Shirley have covered for Kyle's bad behavior before; it certainly is not because positions were cut that Kyle wasn't caught before this

The one thing that amazes me is that there is a Government Study Committee. Why? to see what others towns like us do? Really? It seems as though Shirley spends a lot of time and effort "studying" and then determining that all is ok as is or they do nothing. What about the Economic Development committee? How is that going? I do think it is time to look outside the town. Obviously we need a town administrator. Stop beating around the bush and get to it. Just another crazy waste of time to give some people in this town a "position" that makes them feel important. And Bryan Dumont is the Chair? That just screams conflict of interest doesn't it?
