Montgomery "watchdog" to step down
Saying county government officials have not "fully embraced" his watchdog role, Montgomery County Inspector General Thomas Dagley says he will leave his post at year's end, The Gazette reports.
Dagley, the county's inspector general for the past five years, has had a tense relationship with County Executive Isiah Leggett's (D) office that has played out at times in public and in the media.
Dagley said his decision to leave will allow the next council, which will be sworn in in December, to select a new inspector general.
Dagley told a council committee earlier this year about "interferences" by Leggett's office into his investigations, a claim that Leggett's office has denied.
