Councilman Cook Denied Access To Resumes For Comptroller’s Position
Today, Tuesday October 16, 2012, Councilman Eugene Cook had to FOIL information from Lisa Baisley, Town Personnel Officer for Huntington after requesting copies of the resumes received for the Town Comptroller’s position. The first request of Lisa Baisley was on October 5, 2012 and yesterday Councilman Cook requested that Supervisor Petrone assist him in this matter. As a Town of Huntington Councilman, Eugene Cook stated “Considering the hard economic times the Town of Huntington is in with a budget shortfall, I believe that as a Councilman it is my duty to the Taxpayer to assure them that the most qualified individuals are in the leadership roles in the all our departments.”
‘I have attached a copy of my request and the emails regarding this matter for the Taxpayers of Huntington to review and understand that I plan on working diligently on their behalf”.
Supervisor Petrone was asked about the situation and his response was “no comment.”
