This e-mail was sent by Jeremy Solomons, who was hired by RCC to work on a project related to the school’s 2006 financial aid audit. Solomons is married to Alane Shanks, who was at the time RCC’s vice president of administration and finance. Shanks told the Globe that when the State Ethics Commission questioned Solomons’ hiring in 2008, she advised the commission that she “did not work with or supervise” Solomons’ project, “nor did he and I discuss it.” The commission cleared her on the basis of her testimony. But this e-mail reveals that Shanks and Solomons did discuss the project, and strongly suggests that she was acting as his supervisor.
