ROCKINGHAM, Vt. -

The Rockingham town manager is out of a job.

Tim Cullenen got a unanimous vote of no confidence by the Rockingham Select Board and Bellows Falls Village Trustees at his annual job performance review. Cullenen has been on the job since April 2011. He was put on leave in November after comments he made at a board meeting that some found to be disrespectful.

Wednesday, town officials declined to talk in detail about the vote.

Reporter Adam Sullivan: Can you give a little background about the tensions that obviously exist?

Thomas MacPhee/Rockingham Select Board: Not really, no. Don't care to go into that for a number of reasons. All you need to know is there was a vote of no confidence, I think.

"I really can't go into that right now. It's just no-confidence vote, meaning that the board didn't have the confidence in the manager to do the job," said Roger Riccio, a Bellows Falls village trustee.

Rockingham's current finance manager, Chip Sterns, was named interim municipal manager Wednesday afternoon.

We spoke with Cullenen by phone. He told us that he is currently pursuing his options, but declined to elaborate.
