AG investigation reveals Greyhound Friends board failures

Stephen Bassignani

An Attorney General investigation has revealed that the Greyhound Friends Board of Directors failed to provide sufficient oversight of former Executive Director Louise Coleman and failed to “ensure management and operational decisions were made in the best interest of the organization.”  

This resulted in the charity signing a governance agreement to abide by numerous terms, including keeping Coleman out of paid or unpaid positions involving operations, adoptions, and finances -- and requiring the board not to interfere in any further judgment against Coleman.

Meanwhile, the public hearing to address the kennel license and alleged inhumane and unsanitary conditions in the kennel is scheduled for Sept 11 at the Hopkinton Board of Selectman's meeting. More details will be posted on the Town of Hopkinton website as the meeting date gets closer.

You can email questions or concerns to the Selectmen ahead of the hearing at selectmen@hopkintonma.gov.
