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.

Breaking – Ex-AG asked to probe fishing permit bank gloucesterdailytimes.com

Former state Attorney General Scott Harshbarger is under contract and has begun an assessment of the “governance, policies and operations” of the Gloucester Fishing Community Preservation Fund, the permit bank has announced…. The fund, which is organized as a 501(c)3 non-profit, operates as a permit bank under the presidency of Vito Giacalone, and was capitalized with $12 million in a 2007 mitigation grant from the state for sacrificing Grade A fishing and lobstering grounds to a liquefied natural gas terminal just offshore.
