    "He started the investigation and was lying to us from the beginning," fellow Selectman Larry Ryan said.

    Kimball answered very few questions from reporters, but he said he's not going anywhere.

    "I have no intention to resign," he said. "I will complete my term, and my term is up in April."

    The town of Rockland is hoping to resolve the matter and move on.

    "Quite frankly, we need to clear this mess up and get the town back in order and get it running again and put this all behind us," Ryan said. "The sooner that happens, the better the town of Rockland is going to be."

    The acting town administrator is working to get Rockland back on track, but he acknowledges it won't be easy.
