Commission succession roils Norfolk

Posted by Ralph Ranalli July 17, 2007 12:40 PM


Succession among members of town boards is usually a smooth process, but not so in Norfolk.

Selectmen plan to appoint two new members to the Conservation Commission next week to replace Jay Talerman and Laurence Harrington, Selectman Jim Lehan said.

Selectmen have accused Talerman and Harrington of pushing personal agendas and failing to work well with other town boards. Talerman, who made a run for Lehanís seat in the May town election, has said the decision not to reappoint him was based on politics.
