McNally Will Leave BOE, Plans Run for Town Council

Tom McNally, the former WPCA assistant superintendent currently suing the town for wrongful termination, has been on the BOE for nearly eight years.

Thomas McNally, 37, who is a fixture at town meetings, a member of the Board of Education, member of the Public Safety Commission, Historical Steering Committee, Conservation Commission, RockTenn Advisory Council and other commissions and boards, has annouced he will no longer serve on the BOE rather, he'll make a run for a seat on the Town Council.  
Patch was recently told the suit is close to being settled, although that has not been confirmed by McNally or the Town.

McNally's statement issued to Patch:

"This November 2013, I will have completed nearly 8 years on the Montville Board of Education. During this time I have had the pleasure to meet many wonderful parents, students, teachers and administrators. I have greatly enjoyed being part of such a wonderful, caring board.

However, it is with heavy heart that I have decided rather than continue on the Board of Education, I will instead seek the Republican nomination for a spot on the Montville Town Council. I feel that with my experience, common sense bi-partisan approach, I can be of great help to the citizens of Montville.

I look forward to meeting with all Montville taxpayers over the next several months to discuss your goals and objectives as well as any concerns you may have.

Please feel free to email mcnally4montville@snet.net to share your concerns, suggestions and ideas."

It's great to see a younger person get involved. I look forward to seeing what he has for ideas.

I had the pleasure to work with Mr. Mcnally recently with the medical reserve corp. He was fun, caring and compassionate. I think Montville is blessed to have him.

I have had the pleasure to know Mr. McNally for many years. I was deeply upset with the Mayor and Town Council for what they did to him. However, I can’t stop thinking; the Town must feel that Mr. McNally must have a good case, because they are so eager to settle. They weren’t that eager to settle with the X- Mayor’s Secretary who has an ongoing suit for over 3 years now. They weren’t that eager to settle with Rand Whitney, that suit lasted over ten years. So I feel they are concerned that they don’t have a very good defense. Watch out Mr. Mayor, if Mr. McNally gets elected along with a majority of Republicans and Independence, your life for the remainder of your term will be a living hell. If Mr. Andriote is elected with Mr. McNally, I might even start feeling sorry for you, I wouldn’t want to go through what you would be going through with the two of them together. Good luck Mr. McNally, I hope you and everyone that is running with you are elected.

Theinformant- I also know mr mcnally and can say he is very fair and has never held a grudge. I think he will do an upstanding job on the council. He truly cares about his town.

Good luck Tom, you are a very qualified candidate and would make a fine councilman. Your bi-partisanship would be a welcomed addition to the council, unlike the current council’s “the democrat way or the highway" approach.

Mcnally is a much better choice than the ex-mayor who used up all the towns surplus money and who is still being sued by his assistant for harassment. Only the democrats would rush to put someone like that back into office. The republicans have a good candidate with Mcnally.

Hoping mcfee isnt re elected, I don't think we can have him pouting and storming out of meetings for another 2 years.

Best of luck, we need you
