Lawsuit Filed Against Two County Commissioners
Montgomery County Commissioners now face a lawsuit in connection with the firing of Voter Services Director,Joe Passarella, who was let go last month. Chair of the Montgomery County Commissioners, Josh Shaprio commented on the situation before the lawsuit was filed on Monday’s edition of Comment Please by Univest WNPV.
“I can’t comment on the reasons why Mr. Passarella no longer works here, suffice to say, there was ample reason.
Going forward, there was a lot of misreporting going on about promises made and political deals. None of that is true. In fact, the day we removed Passarella, formally of his duties, we advertised the position on our website, as we’ve done with every other position here.”
A taxpayer, Nicholas Salamone, from Plymouth meeting, filed the lawsuit, naming commissioners Josh Shapiro, Leslie Richards and Michael Paston, who replaced Passarella. The Montgomery County Republican Committee is named as a plaintiff in the suit. The suit was filed on the grounds that Michael Paston was illegally appointed to the post as Director of Voter Services for the county.
