Election Commissioner Appointed for Residency Challenge

June Synosch has previously served on Attleboro's Election Commission.

Election Commissioner Appointed for Residency Challenge

Former Election Commissioner June Synosch will return to the panel on a temporary basis following her unanimous appointment by the City Council on Tuesday. A replacement is needed to address all issues and possibly a hearing challenging the residency of School Committee member David Murphy.

The council did not discuss the appointment during the meeting.

School district parent Jen Crowder has filed a complaint with the city challenging the residency of Murphy, whom she says lives in Boston. Murphy that he had an apartment in Boston, but his permanent residence was in Attleboro.

Commissioner Michael Levinson, a former school committee member, recused himself before the residency issued was discussed. Chair Fran V. Hutton said a temporary replacement was needed so a full-four member commission could address the issue.

The commission will meet again on July 11. Hutton said that a full commission would be able to "look at what has been presented to us and then decide how to proceed." This could include calling for a hearing.
