Fishing fund hires ex-AG for probe

Former state Attorney General Scott Harshbarger is under contract to — and has already begun an assessment of — the “governance,

policies and operations” of the Gloucester Fishing Community Preservation Fund, the locally-based nonprofit corporation announced.

Fund President Vito Giacalone declined comment Wednesday, a day after the fund announced the hiring of Harshbarger

who agreed to take on the task last month, the former attorney general said in a telephone interview. Instead,

Giacalone referred questions to the fund’s newly hired spokesman, David Guarino.
