“Tricky” Sue Menard
It appears that Woonsocket Mayor Susan Menard has been channeling Richard Nixon. She had a secret recording operation set up in her office.
The mayor has a concealed audio/video recording system installed in a credenza behind her desk in her City Hall office.
The device recently came to light during a work session regarding the latest in the battle between the City Council and the mayor over the council’s investigation of whether city employees have misused city resources. The mayor has filed an injunction to prevent the council from conducting its investigation. In the latest twist, the mayor has asked that three council members be deposed regarding the investigation….
“It has recently come to light that there exists within the Mayor’s office a concealed audio/visual recording system, this notice shall also include any and all audio and video recording made with said system,” [Woonsocket City Council lawyer Raymond] Marcaccio says in the letter.
