Select Board Invites Residents to Meet Town Administrator Candidates on Saturday January 26, 9am at Town Hall

The Brewster Select Board is inviting residents to meet the finalists for Town Administrator at a “Coffee with the Candidates” on Saturday January 26 starting at 9am at Brewster Town Hall in Meeting Rooms A and B.

Following the open house, the Select Board will conduct interviews with the candidates at 10am in Town Hall in Rooms A and B. Brewster residents are encouraged to attend.

On January 7, the Board announced three finalists - Daniel Hoort, Peter Lombardi, and Peter Morin. Last week, one of the finalists, Peter Morin, the current Town Administrator in Norwell, dropped out of the field – and submitted this statement to the Select Board.

“This morning, the Norwell Board of Selectmen presented me with an offer to amend my contract and support the funding of additional staff to assist in the performance of my responsibilities. It was an offer that I frankly did not anticipate. After discussing it with my family, I have decided to remain in my role as Town Administrator and withdraw my application with the Town of Brewster.

I wish to emphasize that my experience throughout the hiring process conducted by the Town of Brewster and Community Paradigm has been entirely positive. Everything I have learned about the Select Board and town operations served to increase my interest in the position. It made my decision to remain in Norwell a difficult one.

I apologize for the impact this may have on your search. The other candidates certainly have impressive credentials and I am confident you will be well served. It was an honor to be considered as a finalist for the position. I wish you all the best in the completion of the hiring process and for the future.”

The Town’s search consultant, Community Paradigm Associates, compiled information on the finalists. This information may be downloaded in PDF format.
