Mayor Hurley is in hot water. She took funds from the town which were not hers to pay for her daughter’s school bills. The amount in question is $1700 which the mayor offered to pay back.
She has been arrested on a charge of fourth degree grand larceny, a felony. She is not running for reelection.
I dont know Mayor Hurley or the circumstances of her arrest other than a report that she was under stress and was taking medications. She has worked for the town from 2004 until 2015.
These are the apparent facts, maybe a slap on the wrist and some community service should be the right outcome, but of course that is only the opinion of the editor of this blog.
