Ethics Board: Rotterdam Town Board violated code

Del Gallo also stated that the complaint was against the newest members of the board "Nicki Dileva, Robert Godlewski and Matthew Martin " and Parisi was left out of the complaint.

Parisi said that he had voted against the appointment at the organizational meeting.

Pasquarella said in his letter that he found the opening and review of the letter from Salamone, intended for the Ethics Board, to be "quite appalling."

According to Salamone, his letter was sent on Jan. 4, but was not received by the Ethics Board until Feb. 20.

The letter, however, was seen prior to Feb. 20 by several attorneys, including Assistant Town Attorney Michael Godlewski, according to Pasquarella. The attorneys even wrote an opinion regarding the letter.

Del Gallo said that the letter was inadvertenly opened by a Town Hall staffer and reviewed before being sent to the Ethics Board, and he called the incident an "accident."

"The opening of it could have been an accident," said Parisi. "But the holding of it for three weeks and writing an opinion from the attorney is not an accident." ""
