Sherman Surprise: New First Selectman Filed for Chapter 7 Bankruptcy in September.

What an autumn for Donald T. Lowe. The Sherman Democrat filed for bankruptcy on September 29th while he was a candidate for first selectman. On Tuesday, Sherman defeated Republican incumbent Clay Cope to lead the tony Fairfield County burg.

Voters were not aware of Lowe’s parlous finances. Lowe said nothing of his filing with his wife, Mary Ann Lamb. Republicans made no issue of it, probably because they were unaware. Candidate money troubles were an issue in a couple of other towns in the region.

Sherman residents may discover that transparency is not a hallmark of Lowe’s tenure.
