Town manager position narrowed down to three candidates


The Dracut Town Manager Screening Committee has presented three finalists in the search for a new town manager. Dennis Piendak, who held the position for 28 years, retired last November; negotiations at that time with Andover Assistant Town Manager Steven Bucuzzo did not result in an agreement. The three finalists, drawn from an initial pool of 22 applicants, are Gloucester Chief Administrative Officer James Duggan, North Reading Town Administrator Greg Balukonis, and Salem, N.H., Town Manager Keith Hickey. The Board of Selectmen was presented with the names of the top picks, as well as their professional and educational backgrounds, at a recent meeting. Public interviews of the candidates will be scheduled as the next step in the selection process.
