Windham at a stand-still; town wonders why

Oct 19, 2014 12:03 am
Michael Ryan in the Windham Journal rounds up what little law enforcement officials have let out about the criminal investigation into Windham supervisor Stacy Post. On March 21, a search warrant, carried out by Bureau of Criminal Investigation agents from the state police in Middletown, was part of “an open investigation into potential criminal offenses,” acting DA Charles Bucca said, and led to a computer being seized from Post's office at the town hall. Dennis Schlenker, Post's attorney, wrote a letter to the town board three days after the raid, saying, “it is Ms. Post's understanding that she is the subject of a criminal investigation in connection with her duties as town supervisor" and requested that the town provide Post a legal defense. Now the town board is in executive session often, and the "agitated voices of the council members... easily [could] be heard through the shut door and down an adjoining hallway," Ryan writes of last week's meeting. Columbia County district attorney Paul Czajka is now heading up the case, to avoid conflicts-of-interest in Greene County, and he, like all other law enforcement officials contacted in the story, won't comment.
