Weston Police Commission: Selectmen rescind decision to appoint Edward Schwarz

Jul 13, 2007

Two weeks after granting its unanimous approval, the Weston Board of Selectmen voted last night, Thursday, July 12, to rescind its decision to appoint Edward Schwarz to fill the vacant Police Commission seat.

Mr. Schwarz was nominated by the Democratic Town Committee to fill the seat vacated by Wally Marcus, but unbeknownst to the selectmen, Mr. Schwarz had been arrested by Weston Police in December 2006 for a domestic incident.

“The Democratic Town Committee owes an explanation to the selectmen as to their candidate selection process,” said Selectman Glenn Major during Thursday’s selectmen’s meeting.

“They have a duty to give all the information we need to make an appropriate choice,” added Mr. Major. “To think that a criminal matter that is still pending is not information we should have ... it’s absurd, particularly when that board or commission is the Police Commission.”

“Knowing what I know today, I would not have voted the way I voted,” said First Selectman Woody Bliss.

Selectman Richard Miller agreed. “If I knew at the time I voted at the last meeting what I know now, I would not have voted ‘yea,’” he said.

Because Mr. Schwarz was appointed to an elective commission — not an appointive one — the question as to whether the Board of Selectmen has the legal authority to now reverse its decision is still not crystal clear. Mr. Bliss said he talked to town counsel, who confirmed there is precedent for such a reversal.

“The case law is not 100%,” said Mr. Bliss.

Arrest

The selectmen were informed about Mr. Schwarz’s arrest by Interim Police Chief John Troxell during the June 28 meeting, but after the appointment had already been approved.

Chief Troxell said Thursday he knew that the Mr. Schwarz being nominated for the post was the man arrested by Weston police but did not speak up because he did not know if it was appropriate.

“We did know he was the individual, we just didn’t know the process,” said Chief Troxell. “It was my fault.”

The circumstances surrounding Mr. Schwarz’s arrest have Weston police officers unified in their opposition to Mr. Schwarz’s appointment.

According to the chief and the police union, Mr. Schwarz’s conduct and the words he said to them when he was arrested for a domestic incident last December make them question whether he can sit on the commission objectively.

Officer Robert Klein, who arrested Mr. Schwarz, said Monday, “At the time of his arrest, Mr. Schwarz was very argumentative and said to me, ‘I’ll have your f--ing badge.’”

Officers Chris Powers and Rob Curcio were also at the scene at the time of the arrest, and recalled Mr. Schwarz using those exact words.

Officer Powers said Mr. Schwarz told them he was a lawyer and was careful to note the spellings of their names. “He told us we were making the situation worse by being there,” he said.

Mr. Schwarz has said he told DTC Search Committee members about the domestic incident and also explained that the DCF (Department of Children and Families) had found the allegations unsubstantiated and they were withdrawn.

Mr. Schwarz has a court date of July 18 for the remaining charges and he said he expects the case to be dismissed or nollied. A nolle means the prosecutor has agreed to drop the case but has the right to reopen and prosecute it at any time during the next 13 months.

Discussion

Mr. Bliss said he had asked Mr. Schwarz to attend the July 12 selectmen’s meeting, but that Mr. Schwarz said he had a conflict and was unable to attend. Mr. Schwarz, per Freedom of Information rules, has asked that any discussion about the “content” of his legal situation be held in executive session.

But that did not stop the selectmen from voicing their concerns about the process used in selecting potential candidates to fill vacancies on boards or commissions.

Tradition has held that the political party representing an individual vacating his seat must provide a replacement. The political party does its own search, including interviews, narrowing the field until a single candidate is presented to the selectmen for approval.

Mr. Bliss said over the years the selectmen’s vote has become somewhat of a rubberstamp for the political party’s selection.

“This is troubling,” said Mr. Bliss. “If we are going to have situations like this, where there is a deficiency of information, we may have to have a whole new process for these appointments.”

Chief Troxell suggested performing background checks.

“If a background check or something like that was done, we would not be here right now,” added the chief.

More contentious

The discussion turned more contentious when Mr. Major questioned the DTC’s handling of the selection process. Mr. Miller said he felt that was an inappropriate political attack.

“The (DTC) candidate selection committee had this information. They withheld it from the selectmen, and it sounds like they withheld it from the entire committee,” said Mr. Major.

“You are trying to put the DTC on trial here, and I strongly object to this conversation,” responded Mr. Miller.

“The DTC brought this candidate to the table. They represented that they had vetted the candidates. This is not a political issue. We were deceived, and for you to defend that deception is shocking,” Mr. Major said.

Mr. Miller, a DTC member, said he was not told about Mr. Schwarz’s arrest before the Democrats approved backing his appointment. Mr. Bliss added that fellow DTC member Rick Saltz, also a member of the Police Commission, stated in a letter to the selectmen that he, also, did not know about Mr. Schwarz’s arrest prior to his appointment.

“I don’t know how anyone can possibly justify not telling us this information,” added Mr. Major.

Mr. Miller said he was uncomfortable making any final decision until Mr. Schwarz’s case is heard next week. He did say he felt that Mr. Schwarz should have informed the selectmen about the arrest during his interview the night he was approved.

“In my opinion, when Ed Schwarz was at this table, he should have made the statement, just as he did before the candidate search committee,” said Mr. Miller.

Mr. Major added that, with Mr. Schwarz not informing the selectmen, it became incumbent on the search committee chairman, Barbara Reynolds, who was in attendance when the selectmen were asked to approve the appointment, to provide the information.

Mr. Miller said, “This was a combination of a lot of people making poor judgments,” adding that Chief Troxell or the officers in attendance should have spoken up before the appointment was finally approved. “We’re all at fault.”

“That’s ridiculous,” responded Mr. Bliss. “The fault lies with the one who failed to provide the information.”
