Letter: Clerk-treasurer can’t be trusted



I have read the articles on Clerk-Treasurer Christine Pauley and I believe she should resign from her position. I no longer believe her to be a trusted and honest employee.

Carmel Clerk-Treasurer Christine Pauley said she “accidentally” found a thank-you note a city council candidate sent to Mayor Jim Brainard in a trash can at City Hall.

Pauley said she found the note Feb. 7 in a trash can near a parking area reserved for Brainard at City Hall. She said she had thrown away several coupons and went back to retrieve one that wasn’t expired when she saw the thank-you note and removed it from the trash can.

Who is Pauley to decide to share it because its message did not line up with how she perceives (candidate Adam) Aasen is presenting himself as a candidate?

“To me it only confirmed that a candidate’s claim that he’s independent is truly not independent,” Pauley said. “He could’ve written a very generic thank you.”

I believe Christine Pauley should resign from her position because she cannot be trusted as treasurer. She was digging through trash cans for coupons she accidentally threw out.

How do we know it was coupons and not Village correspondence that she was looking for?

I believe she is not to be trusted with any financial dealings for the Village.
