I obtained the official arrest report of Robert McGrory, Centreville’s town manager (recently resigned), and you can read it for yourself. Its content is quite sad, yet at the same time enlightening. I don’t suggest leaving it on the screen for the kids to read.
Before being tempted to feel sorry for McGrory, re-read the portion where he tells the officer that he knew he was drinking and should not have been driving. This obviously shows that he knew he was breaking the law and chose to do so.
The second portion I would ask you to re-read is where he repeatedly points out to the officer that he is the Town Manager of Centreville and requests to know “if there is something he could do to get out of this.” Clearly, McGrory felt that his position should somehow put him above the laws the rest of us must follow.
I ask you to remember these two points as I will elaborate on them soon in an upcoming story. This is certainly not the only time Bob McGrory has knowingly broken the law or put himself above the laws he was required to follow related to his position as town manager.
