VIDEO: O'Brien Recuses Himself from Lavender Discussion, Then Leaves

The Board of Selectmen Chair takes advice from town counsel and leaves the selectmen's meeting to the dismay of residents.

We'll have more on last night's Board of Selectmen's meeting, including full details from freelancer Ann Kenda.

Enough of the prepared statements that say nothing. OBrien, Drobinski, and Valente need to come clean and take responsibility for their behavior. Friends and employers do not let friends and employees drive drunk Board of Selectmen cannot govern when they violate the very liquor licenses that they oversee. Police actions cannot be swayed by Town leader's presence and blessing of events. Drunk drivers must be arrested and taken off the road for the safety of all, especially the kids around the schools What a mess! Recall OBrien Fire Valente

The cover up (or even perception of one) is always worse than the crime. We have not learned this as a society.

Maybe this bologna going on now will cause the end of the good old boy attitude. I grew up in Sudbury in the 60's and 70's and have lived not far from Sudbury since and still visit on a regular basis

What is the legal process to get rid of these nit wits ....police included . The officer in this case , Barney Fife , also needs to bee reprimanded . After the teachers dismissal and now the ' Lavender ' incident and cover up Sudbury looks like the Lawrence of Metro West .

Wow, 268 people have had enough of the O'Brien, Drobinksi, Valente shenanigans. 268 people within 2 hours. I think it is time for resignations folks.

Get the recall petitions started for the recall election. Wonder what the recent closed lips are talking about in private session?

Part of me prefers it when Mr. O’Brien reads from a prepared statement. It eliminates an enormous amount of “ah ahh ahh” and the accompanying verbal diarrhea. Unfortunately, this is a sign that he is covering up something like the time he read a statement about the town mangers salary increase decision on the eve of selectmen election.

Can we have a Special Town Election? Can anyone tell me if Sudbury residents can request a special town election? In light of what has been happening with the Lavender and OUI incidents, our members of the board are too distracted to be focusing on town issues. Can we request a special election to vote in a new board?
Ron C June 13, 2012 at 06:24 PM
yes you can by collecting signatures go to the town hall to get the papers needed
pmotw June 13, 2012 at 06:28 PM
We should have a special election. You are so right about these people occupying a majority of their time blaming others and trying to sweep this under the rug.
Karen June 13, 2012 at 11:57 PM
Okay, two of you, pmotw and Alexa, are making this sound like there is more to the story. Can you elaborate? Ron C, how many signatures does it require? Or is it easier to just request that those at Lavender's should just step down?
