Deane looking forward to leading Nashua aldermen
Alderman-at-Large David Deane will be at the helm of the Board of Aldermen in the new year, as the board recently nominated him to replace existing board president Brian McCarthy.
Deane, who has served as a city alderman for more than a decade, admits there is a lot of lobbying that goes into receiving the nod for board president. Going into Monday's caucus meeting, Deane said he was unsure of how many of his fellow board members would support him, considering Alderman-at-Large Lori Wilshire was identified as an opponent just a few days prior.
Deane will officially become the board president during inauguration events on Jan. 5. In the meantime, he said he intends on touching base with all five of the new board members to make sure they are prepared for the year ahead.
"I am looking to purge out the committees that have disbanded or no longer meet," said Deane. Specifically, he said the Nashua Transit Advisory Committee, the Nashua Green Team and the Services Advisory Committee may no longer be necessary, but might require ordinances to officially close the groups.
Before being elected as a city alderman, Deane served on the Board of Public Works for about four years. He is also active with the Nashua Cal Ripken Baseball program, and the city's skateboard park is named in his honor.
