Osborne elected chairman of Derry Town Council
Osborne, who abstained, was elected by a unanimous vote of 6-0.
Before handing over the reins to Osborne, Fairbanks took a moment to thank the town and council for helping him over the past year he served as chairman. Fairbanks then said it was time to step down.
Acting Administrator Larry Budreau alertly switched the nameplates after Osborne and Fairbanks changed seats.
Speaking for the first time as chairman, Osborne thanked Fairbanks for assuming the role during the past year. It was a period that saw a divided council, with Osborne joining councilors Al Dimmock and Thomas Cardon in frequently opposing former Councilors Brad Benson and Neil Wetherbee on issues.
During this coming year, Osborne said he would try to do the best job he could while being open to suggestions.
“There is no pride in fulfilling this role, and I’m not too prideful to take suggestions,” he said.
