LiaBraaten owes Washington Township taxpayers $7,104.

Failed WMRHSD BOE candidate James LiaBraaten owes the taxpayers of Washington Township $7,104. This amount represents 44.4 hours of legal services performed by Russ Weiss, Esq. between May 21, 2008 and March 24, 2009 on behalf of the WMRHSD BOE in defense of former board member Peter (Jeff) Emery against a school ethics complaint filed by Mr. LiaBraaten in the wake of his failed attempt for a one year seat on the WMRHSD school board. The $7,104 figure was confirmed by the Custodian of Records for the WMRHSD in response to an Open Public Records Act (OPRA) request.

All Washington Township taxpayers should look to Mr. LiaBraaten to honor the standard he set by seconding and voting in favor of a WTBOE resolution (motioned by Bill Roehrich) asking Ms. Ruth McCurdy to repay legal expenses incurred by the WTBOE as a result of her 2006 complaint against former WTBOE member James Harmon.

Mr. LiaBraaten's check should be made out to the West Morris Regional High School District.
