BURLINGTON, Vt. (AP) - A former Vermont town clerk and treasurer convicted of embezzling $100,000 between 2001 and 2006 has dropped her effort to collect more than $23,000 in retirement funds.

The Burlington Free Press reports (http://bfpne.ws/1MaD208) Suzanne LaBombard dropped her request in a letter received by the town of Isle La Motte this week.

She was paid about $8,000 due to her, but had said the town agreed to add to her retirement account. Town officials and the Vermont Municipal Employees’ Retirement System rejected the request on grounds they were unable to find any documentation supporting the use of town dollars to buy extra retirement credits.

LaBombard, who had repaid the $100,000, said in her letter she apologized for bringing the case back into the public spotlight.
