Silverman tries making nice to IG Dagley

Councilman Steve Silverman, emerging from virtual hiding for more than a week after the release of the IG report on Kendale, is trying to make the best of it as he moves his political campaign for county executive forward.

The relationship between the IG's office and the county government has improved in the 11 months since Thomas Dagley has been Inspector General, Silverman says, just days after saying the IG had no legal right to investigate his Kendale project.

"I think it’s a far more cooperative relationship between the IG and the executive branch and other agencies," Silverman says in the Gazette. "It’s far less confrontational. He [Dagley] hasn’t been complaining and neither have the agencies."
