Another Cohasset contract bites the dust
Your diligent TU blogger learned Saturday AM that Mark Brennan, of the newly formed operations department at town hall was ousted last Friday. Wonder if Cohasset acting Town Manager Mike Milanoski frisked him before he escorted him to the parking lot – he loves doing that tough guy kind of stuff. I don’t blame Milanoski. He is only a minion, a willing one albeit, of your board of selectmen and their supervisors, the self-styled Environmental 20 (E-20) of the elite Cat Damn (sic) association.
Brennan did not return our phone calls so I suppose we’ll just have to show up for the selectmen’s public comment period next week and ask selectmen to give us their rendition of the dirty deed. According to my new best friend Mike Coughlin (former town manager) Brennan, our now former DPW director (correction, Operations Director), has a standard and very legal 3-year contract with the Town, and can only be fired for cause. It will be interesting to learn what the cause was. Brennan’s the guy who was going to be part of a group who would choose the water department’s concessionaire, but now of course he won’t be doing that. In any case, a legal three-year contract should be something worth suing for.
Let’s see…the tally so far.
Former selectman Karen Quigley went last year because she was a no vote – can’t have those no votes hanging around, particularly when they tell people why they voted no. The self-styled Environmental 20 (E-20), members of the elite Cat Damn (sic) association, worked hard to defeat her. As hard as they worked, they only got her by 51 votes or so.
Three Conservation members were fired and/or reassigned. Conservation commission has never been the same. The replacements are no shows so the 80-year-olds on the committee have to do triple duty. E-20 demanded the assassinations.
Town Manager Mike Coughlin – E-20 knew from the beginning he was not the right man for the job. He had to go and he went in February.
Mark Brennan – I was at the meeting where fuzzy Ted Carr yessed Coughlin to death saying :” “Keep it up, we like what you’re doing,” with respect to keeping Brennan in operations and bringing him into the employee fold. Maybe Carr’s spending too many late nights at Mr. Dooley’s. Maybe a little less Mr. Dooley’s is in order and some more walks around the block.
Cohasset Planning Board, all five of them, are now in the bad people column with KQuigley and the others. They had the audacity to support and defend a raise for their planning coordinator. What hubris! And of course the planning coordinator is in danger, through no fault of her own. Milanoski is the appointing/firing authority. What hath God wrought?!!
The rumor is our police chief is next –and then of course all the other poor town employees with Coughlin contracts with the town, with which Milanoski is attemting to “restructure,” wearing his black undertaker suit.
I think this adds up to 13 people who have been dealt with or are about to be dealt with.
This of course is just my opinion. You might have a different opinion. If you sign in with your real name we might allow you to express it. We understand Cohasset-Townie was removed from the Cohasset Mariner site yesterday. She probably went berserk when she was unable to spew forth on our site. Love that cyber fence we built!
