I had to watch three people who dont even live here trash the town manager and the police, he said last week. I dont want anything other than the harassment to stop. The Provincetown Charter states that the charter enforcement commission may only take action following a written petition, filed by a voter or voters alleging a violation of this charter by reason of an act, or a failure to act of the town manager, the acting town manager, the moderator, the board of selectmen, the school committee, or the finance committee, or members of those committees, Hoort quoted in his email. Upon discovering that a grievance cannot be filed against the towns personnel board and its chair, Tina Trudel, at the local level, Dan Hoort, the towns director of municipal finance, said by email Thursday that he intends to file his first complaint with the state Ethics Commission. Unfortunately because the Provincetown Charter does not provide for [enforcement] by the charter enforcement commission in regard to any other town committee or board except those listed I will file my complaint at the state level instead [of] the local level, he wrote. Hoort has complained of a hostile work environment, citing a July 22 personnel board meeting at which three summer residents, actress Gail Strickland, Judge Maria Lopez and her husband, newspaper publisher Stephen Mindich, said during a public comment period that they were distressed about the police department and the way it is being overseen by Town Manager Sharon Lynn.

It said a new chief financial officer will be appointed “in due course.” It added that Loescher would leave the board “by mutual agreement.” The company had said Saturday night that the supervisory board would meet Wednesday to decide on his departure a terse announcement that was followed by media reports of infighting. The prospect of trouble even prompted Chancellor Angela Merkel to express concern. Spokesman Georg Streiter said earlier this week the German leader considered it important that the company a “flagship” of German industry return to “calm waters.” Munich-based Siemens makes industrial machinery such as power generation and transmission equipment, high-speed trains, and medical diagnostic scanners. It has 370,000 employees, including 56,500 in the United States, and is active in 190 countries. Last Thursday, the company said it would miss its 2014 goal of a 12 percent profit margin, blaming “lower market expectations.” “During the past week I came to the conclusion that the foundation of trust necessary for me to remain was lacking,” Loescher said in a statement explaining his decision to offer his resignation.
