The Poughkeepsie Journal is reporting today that Chief Sassi has filed yet another lawsuit against the City of Beacon for "First Amendment Rights violations." The article releases the text of a letter sent by Sassi to City Administrator Joe Braun regarding Braun's use of City vehicles for personal purposes. While the letter raises legitimate questions, the letter—which should have been directed to the City Council rather than Braun—clearly has an insubordinate tone.
Sassi's attorney Jonathan Lovett—highlighting the true purpose behind Sassi's several lawsuits—stated that, "...the problem is Braun — he ought to be removed. [Removing Braun] would save the city hundreds of thousands of dollars in legal costs."
