Assistant town administrator Howlett is moving on


Assistant Town Administrator Nancy Howlett will leave her job on Friday after working for 22 years in the Board of Selectmen’s office. After former administrator Jim Thomas resigned under pressure two years ago, Howlett served as interim town administrator for a year, until the town hired attorney Robert Fennessy last June for the job. During that time, Howlett continued to hold the assistant position as well, effectively doing two jobs as selectmen looked for a candidate who would make a long-term commitment to the town. A Fall River resident, Howlett said in a recent interview that she will take her time to find “a job that I really like.” She said her administrative experience in town government would prepare her to work in a range of fields.
