In an emailed statement, the St. Michaels commissioners addressed the dismissal of Town Manager Jean Weisman and thanked her for lengthy service with the town.
“After a lengthy discussion during a closed session on June 24th, a majority of the Commissioners of St. Michaels concluded that the time had come to part ways with Town Manager Jean Weisman.
“We are bound by law to keep the content of that discussion confidential.
“Unfortunately, the nature of her position, and the sensitive, confidential information in her possession and control did not afford us the opportunity to provide prior notice.
“We thank Ms. Weisman for her longtime service to the town and wish her all the best in the future.
“An interim manager with extensive experience will be hired to serve until a permanent replacement is recruited.”
Weisman has worked for the town of St. Michaels for 37 years, the last 10 as town manager.
