Hire draws jeers

(Continued)

Lockport Union-Sun & Journal — Board members were not happy about the leaked memos, which led to a series of rumors Tibbetts said she was receiving calls about for the previous two days.

Residents took issue with the appointment, as well as Tibbetts’ explanation about not being able to contact employers without the applicant’s permission. Districts officials also confirmed Connolly’s secretary knew Dunn, which some in attendance didn’t like.

Cocco said, in the end he was glad his son didn’t get the job. He didn’t want him to work for the district after this.

“You all know what you did,” Cocco said.

Board President James Reineke said he felt Newfane’s hiring policy was fine, but the actual practice needed some work. Reineke said a committee will be set up to look at the implementation of the district’s hiring policy.
