Plymouth: Board of selectmen keep old organization, swear in new member

By Bobbi Clark

There’s a newcomer on the Plymouth Board of Selectmen, but the organizational chart remains the same. Newly re-elected selectman John Mahoney will continue as vice-chairman and Bill Hallisey retains the chairmanship:

“We are the two senior men on the board now and I think we did a good job last year,” said Hallisey.

Hallisey joined others on the board in paying tribute to former Selectman Dicky Quintal.

“His years of service and his accomplishments, I felt needed to be touched on,” said Hallisey.

Vice Chair John Mahoney said, “You look at the last twenty-four months, forty-eight years of institutional memory has left. And now you have a cumulative seven years left on this board. But we’re engaged, we’re approachable.”

Newly elected Selectman Belinda Brewster has also been officially sworn in.

“I’ve got a key now to town hall and I went to school across the street at Nathanial Morton and we used to come over here for field trips, and I’m just honored to be able to serve the people of Plymouth,” said Brewster.

At present Selectmen are meeting every other week; their next meeting will take place on May 31st
