Easton's latest redevelopment hero is Mark Mulligan's VM Development Group. He's got the Simon Silk Mill, Wolf Building, Northampton National Bank and Pomeroy Building. Mayor Sal Panto calls Mulligan an "excellent construction manager."
Brett must think Mulligan is excellent, too. He works for him. According to the Department of State, he's been a broker for VM Realty since June 6, 2014. How he works for Mulligan and works for an authority that is overseeing Mulligan's work must be very easy.
It gets better. Brett is also a member of Easton's Zoning Hearing Board, which has approved Mulligan's excellent zoning requests for the Silk Mill and Wolf Building.
Excellent for Brett. Excellent for Mulligan.
For those concerned about conflicts of interest, not so much.
