D’Agostino also referenced Monday’s story in The Eagle-Tribune about his Jan. 22 letter to Fountain thanking him for a job interview. The date of the letter indicated D’Agostino was interviewed well before other applicants.
D’Agostino has said he wrote an original cover letter in response to the solicitor job opening on Jan. 22. He then used the original letter as a template to write a second March 5 letter, but never changed the date, he said.
“I didn’t meet with the subcommittee prior,” D’Agostino said last night. “If you can chide me for anything, it’s for not proofreading the letter.”
