Complaint: Yaede’s appointment as Hamilton mayor planned in advance

HAMILTON — Kelly Yaede’s appointment as Hamilton mayor at a special Nov. 30 council meeting was decided in advance at a political caucus two weeks ahead of time, according to one of two complaints filed with the state.
The complaints, filed by former councilman Vinnie Cappodano, originally went to the township before being forwarded to the state. He filed the first against all members of council, including then-Council Vice President Yaede, for violating the state’s Open Public Meetings Act in discussing Yaede’s selection as mayor at a Nov. 15 caucus meeting.
“She (Yaede) was going to get it no matter what, but you do it properly, you don’t do it with a backroom deal,” he said. “I feel they violated the Sunshine Act when they met to plan the November 30, 2012 council meeting to appoint a new mayor.”
