Derry town administrator John Anderson agrees to step down
The Town Council voted, 6-1, last Tuesday night not to renew Anderson's contract after it expires on Oct. 25, pending receipt of the signed separation agreement. Counselor Mark Osborne was the lone councilor to vote in opposition.
Budreau has refused to comment on the separation agreement beyond a two-paragraph statement issued after last week's council meeting.
Reached by phone Monday, Rosenberg said another attorney is representing Anderson in the matter with the town. Rosenberg referred inquiries to attorney Kevin Leonard, who couldn't be reached for comment.
Other councilors have also refused to comment.
Following the alleged incident last summer, the Derry Town Council voted in nonpublic session to stop paying Anderson pending the outcome of a meeting with him. But after meeting last month with Anderson and his former attorney Cornelius Sullivan in a closed-door session, the council took no action and voted to seal the minutes.
"Whatever happened, happened in the privacy of Mr. Anderson's home," Sullivan said.
Anderson has remained on administrative leave since July 12, the day after the alleged incident at his house.
The salesman told police that he was working in the neighborhood on July 11. He approached Anderson's house, knocked on the door, but no one answered. As he was leaving, he said he noticed an arm extending out the door and waving him back, police said.
