Wellesley lawyer Richard Plouffe remains hungry for the $24K in lunch fees that the Wellesley Public School system is still owed by families.
Plouffe copied us on a letter sent to the Wellesley School Committee in which he states that as a Wellesley taxpayer, he believes the town owes it to residents to try to avoid eating the debt. Plouffe would like to buy the debt and then handle collection of it. He wrote in part: “If you truly opine that there is no value to any of the $36,000 or more worth of accounts you are prepared to write off, or have already written off, why would you refuse to sell them to a buyer who is ready, willing and able to pay you cash for those accounts after reviewing the paperwork available to document those debts?”
Plouffe has attempted to convince the school committee in the past to let him buy off the debt, without any success
