Paul Dulac, former and controversial superintendent of the Marblehead Public Schools and his publicly acknowledged, “close friend,” Elizabeth “Libby” Moore, former high school principal, have both admitted, in writing, violations of the Massachusetts conflict of interest laws by hiring the wife of School Committee member, Dick Nohelty without following the “standard procedures.” The State Ethics Commission has approved two Disposition Agreements in which the admissions were made and signed.

Both Dulac and Moore were fined $500 and have paid the fine.

“Tammy Nohelty, the wife of School Committee member Richard Nohelty, learned of the vacancy and contacted Moore to express an interest in the teaching position before the position was posted.

“Nohelty was interviewed for the position by Moore and by the Veterans Middle School assistant principal three days before the position was advertised; that same day, Moore submitted a recommendation to Dulac to hire Nohelty,” according to the press release and as previously reported in The Lynn Item.

What the Marblehead School department will do to correct the erroneous and unethical hiring of Nohelty’s wife remains to be seen.
