John Charbonneau, recently named director of planning and development by the Board of Selectmen, began work on Aug. 26. He succeeds Marilyn Whalley, who retired last December. A resident of Woonsocket, R.I., Charbonneau brings 15 years of experience as a municipal planner, mostly recently as town planner for Wareham and Rochester. “I’m thrilled to be here,” Charbonneau said, noting that he is the latest Wareham official — including Whalley — who has gone on to work for Raynham. “The people I’ve spoken to about Raynham have nothing but nice things to say about the town. It seems to be a really good town to work for. There’s a lot of continuity in town, a lot of stability,” he said. “That’s something that is rare to find in a lot of municipalities.”
