Norridgewock town worker elected to oversee woman who fired her

The Associated Press

NORRIDGEWOCK, Maine — A former Norridgewock town worker fired for allegedly secretly recording town hall conversations has been elected to the Board of Selectmen.

Charlotte Curtis, fired as office clerk in January by town manager Michelle Flewelling, will now serve on the panel that oversees Flewelling.

Curtis, 66, won the election on Monday.

She told the Morning Sentinel that she just wants to work to make the town better.

Although Curtis was fired from her 40-hour-per-week job, she retained the elected positions of town clerk and treasurer. It is unclear if Curtis can serve on the select board if she has unfinished business as treasurer.

Curtis has filed a complaint over her firing claiming it was age discrimination.
