Dooley reinstated to position after long, costly legal battle

  MOUNT WASHINGTON—After nearly six years, the question has finally been answered: Michael Dooley is the chief of the Mount Washington Fire Protection District.

In the latest of executive session meetings to work out plans, a motion was approved to bring the matter to a conclusion after Dooley was improperly terminated in 2012.

As of Oct. 2, Dooley officially returned to work as Mount Washington’s fire chief.

“I’m just happy it’s all done,” he said.
