Small Mass. town sees a rash of resignations

There is big trouble in the small Franklin County town of Hawley. Select Board member Tedd White resigned Thursday, the fourth official in the town of about 330 residents to step down since a March 12 special election to replace a selectman who died in office. White said in his resignation letter he would rather ‘‘pound my thumbs with a hammer’’ than attend ‘‘crooked, rigged’’ board meetings. The Recorder of Greenfield reported that White said he cannot endure the ‘‘rudeness, disrespect, bias, and disregard for procedure’’ of board chairman Phil Keenan. The town clerk, town moderator, and a member of the regional school committee also resigned this month. (AP)
