I have managed to get hold of a letter from Dr. Frank Archangelo, chair of the Community Services Board, to Spenser Hellwig, Saratoga County Administrator. It eliminates any ambiguity about what happened. It confirms that, contrary to statements by Hellwig and Supervisor Matt Veitch, the Community Services Board did not hire Dr. Prezioso. It also referenced that the candidates that the CSB sent to the county personnel committee were prioritized. The only thing missing is the fact that Dr. Prezioso was the fourth choice out of the four that were recommended.
It also exposes the fact that the Community Services Board is not providing governance as required by the statute.
Finally, Dr. Archangelo’s letter implies that he sees no urgency in resolving this issue and, contrary to the statue, he leaves it in the hands of the county as to what role in the future the Community Services Board should have.
