Simmons calls on Stonington to release McKrell complaint – The Day

By Joe Wojtas

Stonington — Selectman Rob Simmons has called on First Selectman George Crouse to release a harassment complaint filed by Public Works Director Barbara McKrell to both he and Selectman Mike Spellman, who is among those named in the complaint.

After McKrell filed the complaint last month, the town’s Director of Administrative Services Vincent Pacileo alerted Spellman, Board of Education Chairman Frank Todisco, school board member Alisa Morrison and resident Cynthia DeCesare that they will need to be interviewed.

The four all said the town had refused to give them a copy of the complaint so they do not know if they are being accused of some type of wrongdoing or are witnesses. All four had raised questions or passed on complaints they have received from residents about the use of pesticides on the high school athletic fields.

Simmons said Crouse has not yet responded to his July 15 email request. Last week the town rejected the Day’s June 25 Freedom of Information request for the complaint. [Read More]
