MIDDLEBURY, CT. 30 November 2011-113011SV06-First Selectman Thomas P. Gormley works in his office at town hall in Middlebury Wednesday. Gormley's administration seemed to follow an arc of starting strong with support and ending weak. In the first half of his four years in office, he completed a forensic audit, secured money for a fire truck and eventually got a new police radio system in place. Later though, he fought unions and other selectmen, sometimes shouting and gave a former co-worker and friend a one year contract.
