The Carver Board of Selectmen will be preparing for interviews with the four town administrator candidates over the next several weeks. Town Administrator Screening Committee Chair, Jack Franey, briefly explained the selection process. Out of the 24 applicants that came before the committee, the Collins Center narrowed it down to around twelve. The Committee then interviewed seven of them and selected four finalists. “We chose what we feel will be a future Town Administrator for a few years to come for our town,” he said.

Three of the four candidates are currently Town Adminstrators for other towns: Michael McCue in Avon, Allan Chiocca in Rockland, and Michael Milanoski in Cohasset. Franey said the fourth candidate, David Marciello, is a former town administrator from Rehoboth.

Member of the Committee and Finance Committee Chair John Cotter thanked all of the other members of the committee for their hard work. “The Town Administrator Screening Committee took its responsibilities very seriously,” he said. “I am proud to be part of a group that worked together with a laser focus on finding the candidates that best fit the profile provided to the committee.”

Members of the committee were as follows: John Cotter, Jack Franey (Selectmen representative and Committee Chairman), Daniel Brassil, Ann Marie Olson, John Delli Priscoli, Paul Johnson, and Lance Kennedy (School Committee Chairman).

The Selectmen voted to  hold a reception for the candidates next Tuesday night, December 10th. Franey said the meeting will start at 6:00p.m. “We’ll open it up and give each one of the candidates two or three minutes to speak,” he said. From 6:00p.m to 7:00p.m. they will have all of the department heads come in to meet the candidates, and from 7:00p.m. to 8:00p.m. they will open it up to the general public.

In addition, the Selectmen will be interviewing the candidates at their regularly scheduled meeting on December 10th. Each candidate will be given about an hour interview that night. The Selectmen will then take  their vote at a special meeting on December 17th. Franey said the interviews will probably go until about 11:00p.m. on the 10th, so the Selectmen will need another week to “hash over” all of the good points before they make their final decision.
