HighMs. Lemieux:I’m sorry I missed you this morning. According to your assistant Faye Zukowskiyou’re out of the office all day which would explain why you didn’t reply to my earlieremail.Thank you for providing the records.That being said, my request remains unfulfilled as I requested the
 Accountant’s response
 to the 2006 Management Letter submitted by Melanson Heath & Co. The documentappears to be a cut and paste while violating the very internal controls the auditflagged: the document is not time-stamped; the document has no signature; thedocument was printed on generic white paper.As the custodian of this record the law states you are to provide me the
originaldocument
. Please do this immediately.If it is the Board of Selectmen’s contention that this is the original then pleaseaffirm. Additionally, please provide me the name of the accountant and the date thisresponse letter was sent and received.I appreciate your continued cooperation in this matter.

RE: Payment Received/Schedule to review
Wed 2/13/2013'Heather R. Lemieux' <administrator@townofbarre.com>Ms. Lemieux:
If 
this is the original then when was it received? And by whom?***
Wonderland’s Town Administrator has yet to reply to this simple, straight-forward question.
 Ms. Lemieux claims embattled ex-town accountant Dan Haynes wrote these responsesyet the document provides no proof of authorship. In fact, it provides very little –
of anything!
Dear Outsiders simply compare the related
ongoing
fiscal concerns raised yet again inthe 2006 Management Letter submitted by Melanson Heath & Co. to Mr. Haynes’
 
alleged responses which were only accepted by selectmen in Nov. ’12. By this point thecriminal investigation was well underway and Haynes was nothing but a footnote.
