Police lieutenant tapped for administrator’s role
Gaydos, who had worked as the town administrator since 2002, and previously served as town administrator in Ashland and Ossipee, did not give a reason for his resignation and selectmen didn’t readily discuss their reasons for placing him on administrative leave.
In addition to his patrol supervision duties in the police department, McCarthy was the department’s senior services officer, serving as the liaison between the town’s senior population and the department.
He began his law enforcement career in 1988 with the Brookline Police Department, where he rose through the ranks to chief in 1996.In 1997, he joined the New Hampshire State Police as a state trooper, where he patrolled the highways of Rockingham and Hillsborough County until 2003 when he was transferred to the commercial truck enforcement team out of Concord.
Selectmen Chairman Edmund Gleason said the board was not necessarily looking for someone with town administrator or manager experience, but someone who shows good leadership and management skills.
