Absent selectman baffles Wareham officials


A Wareham selectman has apparently moved to Florida without resigning or telling any other town officials he was leaving.

The town clerk said as of Wednesday afternoon she had not received any sort of resignation letter from Selectman J. Michael Schneider, who won a seat on the board in April.

Board member Cara Winslow told The Standard-Times she has tried unsuccessfully to reach Schneider and had “no idea” of his whereabouts.

Winslow said she hasn’t seen Schneider since Aug. 2 and that she’s concerned. But at the same time she said he has the obligation to let the community know whether he plans to continue his official duties.

Schneider’s son said his father is fine and in Florida. A neighbor said he took a job there and had to move immediately.
