Committee to name town administrator finalists

At the Board of Selectmen’s meeting Tuesday, the search committee for the new town administrator is expected to recommend three to four finalists. The next step in the process will be for selectmen to schedule interviews. Rene Read, who became town administrator in December 2009, resigned effective May 12 to become town manager in his hometown of Duxbury. Thirty people applied to fill his position in Hanson. Meredith Marini, executive assistant to the Board of Selectmen, was chosen by the board to serve as interim administrator until a permanent administrator is in place.
