Derry officials say administrator to remain on paid leave
On Friday afternoon, the council met in a non-public session and resolved to keep Anderson on paid administrative leave pending a Town Council inquiry into criminal charges against him.
Anderson makes just under $125,000 per year.
On July 12, the council during an emergency meeting voted to place Anderson on paid administrative leave pending an investigation. At that time, the council also voted to appoint assistant Town Administrator Larry Budreau as acting town administrator and made him the official town spokesman for all inquiries into the case involving Anderson.
“We anticipate the inquiry to be expeditious, and we hope to have it concluded within a week,” said Budreau.
Councilor Mark Osborne said he respected the council vote to have Budreau act as the town spokesman on the Anderson issue and referred all questions to Budreau.
