Flanked by James Walters and Selectman Penny Monahan yesterday, Jim Lash said town payroll accountants' recent conclusion that the town had overpaid Gray and other activated reservists was wrong. Lash said Gray would be reimbursed the $500 and future paychecks would be issued for the regular amount.
About 75 people attended the open house, including First Selectman Jim Lash, Selectmen Peter Crumbine and Penny Monahan, state Reps. Claudia "Dolly" Powers, Livvy Floren and Lile Gibbons, and dozens of town employees.
Floren, a Republican, is seeking a third term representing the 149th District in the state House of Representatives, which includes eastern Greenwich and parts of Stamford. She is being challenged by Kim Hynes, a Stamford Democrat.
