Fired Vt. town manager wants job back
ST. JOHNSBURY, Vt.—The former town manager in St. Johnsbury, Vt., wants his job back.
Ralph Nelson says he wasn't told why he was fired last week. The Caledonian Record reports (http://bit.ly/IeVFml) he is seeking a legal injunction against the town select board that will allow him to return to work.
Nelson has been town manager since August 2010. He was dismissed following a unanimous vote of no confidence by the select board last week. The board said it did so "for certain actions" performed by Nelson that were "directly against the will of the board and were misrepresented" by him to the board.
St. Johnsbury Select Board Chairman Jim Rust said he couldn't comment on Nelson's statement.
