McCarthy enters selectmen’s race

Saying he was dismayed by the “turbulence and dysfunction” of the Board of Selectmen, Kevin McCarthy announced last week he is running for one of the two spots on the board up for election in May . Chairman of the town’s appointed Governance Committee, McCarthy said this is his first time running for office and that he is not affiliated with any group or individual. He said he was motivated to run because current selectmen’s “inability to professionally, and too often even courteously, work on the critical issues facing Cohasset has impaired the effectiveness of our town governance and done little to alleviate the acrimony which has, for far too long, hung over Cohasset politics.” He cited his business experience, including 19 years with Dunkin’ Donuts, and later law career as qualifications for selectman. Incumbent Selectwoman Diane Kennedy and chairman Fred Koed have said they will run for re-election.
