There are some jobs you couldn't pay me enough......This is one of them. Framingham has some "unique" issues and the cost of aggravation is not something you can put a price on. The good news for him is.....he stays for 3 years....retires and look at the nice pension he gets. jim@ccfiile.com

Two questions: 1. Does this mean the Foley issue will finally get resolved? 2. 3 weeks of sick time seems a lot (especially when the government sector tends to allow you to cash them out when you leave). Did the BOS check on how much sick time he has actually used in his prior position? And does his contract allow him to get money back for unused sick time when he leaves?
