Kraft dispute prompts Foxborough squabble

Town manager at odds with selectman

The chairman of the Board of Selectmen in Foxborough wants to explore disciplinary proceedings against Town Manager Kevin Paicos, contending that bad advice, combative behavior, and mismanagement by Paicos prompted a lawsuit by the Kraft Group and injured relations with the town’s largest taxpayer.

The turmoil in town government, simmering because of a proposed casino, boiled over in March when Paicos advised Larry Harrington, chairman of the selectmen, not to allow Kraft Group lawyers to speak at a public meeting concerning billboard revenue that the two sides have shared until now. Paicos said it would sully a new bidding process for rights to the billboards.
