The Hummel Report, a news agency founded by Barrington resident and longtime journalist Jim Hummel, recently featured a piece about Barrington’s Spencer Trust.
The Report scrutinized the Trust and specifically asked whether the money that had been left by former resident Wilton Spencer to help the poor and unfortunate people in town was being used properly.
The Report offers interviews with Council President June Speakman, who defended the use of trust money for affordable housing development and associated legal costs. It also included interviews with residents Gary Morse and John Cregan, who criticized the council and the direction offered by its attorney, Michael Ursillo.
