East Longmeadow town manager Mary McNally submitted her letter of resignation to the town council at last evening’s meeting. The peevish letter was read by the town clerk at the start of the meeting. The letter states,
The reasons for my decision can be summed up in one sentence. The complete lack of a modicum of professional courtesy, the insidious negativity and suspicion, the continuous pattern of overreaching by a particular councilor into matters which the charter clearly identifies as the responsibility of the manager and disingenuous communication and misrepresentation of facts to other councilors have created a work environment which I find intolerable.
