AYER — Jannice Livingston, 48, admits the event that triggered her run for selectman was watching Selectman Frank Maxant rip up a certificate of appreciation given to each selectman by Ayer American Legion Post 139.
Maxant claimed his friend, who was a former neighbor, an honorably-discharged Marine veteran and a Level 3 sex offender, was denied membership in the local post. Livingston’s sister, Betty Ann Matozel, is the commander of the local post. The two are Navy veterans, as is Maxant.
