Aloisi, as a result of his cabinet office, is the chairman of the Pike board. He said of Connaughton:
"Respect is a two-way street," Aloisi said, a few days after cutting Connaughton off repeatedly during the Feb. 24 meeting and removing her from a spot on the authority's audit committee, where she had freer access to agency documents. "And I wasn't treated with respect and I haven't been treated with respect by her since the first day I took this job."
"She's a distraction," he continued. "She's a gadfly. And I have more important things to do."
