New Haven government’s top lawyer is looking for three new attorneys to replace three he has let go.

Corporation Counsel Victor Bolden renewed the contracts of his other seven staff attorneys. The attorneys all work on one-year contracts.

Asked for a comment on his decision, Bolden deferred to City Hall mayoral spokesman Laurence Grotheer, who released this one-paragraph statement:

“Under the City’s Charter, lawyers in the Office of the Corporation Counsel (‘Office’) are Mayoral appointees and serve a term of one-year, except for the Corporation Counsel, who serves a two-year term. All of these one-year terms end on January 31, 2014. After careful consideration of Office needs in the next year, Corporation Counsel Victor A. Bolden recommended to Mayor Harp that seven of the ten lawyers currently in the Office be appointed for a one-year term, beginning on February 1, 2014. He did not recommend appointments for Deputy Corporation Counsel Felipe Pastore, Senior Assistant Corporation Counsel James Del Visco, and Senior Counsel Timothy Lynch, because he did not believe it was in the City’s best interests to do so. These positions will be posted and open to applicants as soon as practicable.”

OMG! Is it possible that these three lawyers were not retained due to poor performance?  I’m shocked.  What an example to set for city government. :-)
