Search for Derry town administrator ramps up

DERRY — Town councilors will be meeting in non-public sessions next week to review the credentials of approximately 60 candidates who are vying to become the next town administrator.

Scheduled for Monday and Tuesday, the special sessions are part of a timeline the council approved late last month to appoint someone for the position as early as July 1.
Council Chairman Mark Osborne announced the scheduled sessions during last week’s regular meeting.

“I thank this council and I thank the town for its patience for allowing us to do what we all believe will be a thorough job,” Osborne said.So far, the council has received the cover letters and resumes of approximately 60 candidates, Osborne said.
Councilors have spent most of this month reviewing resumes and getting familiar with the candidates. Councilors will review and rate each applicant.

The process will continue into June, with councilors narrowing the list to a set of semifinalists and then finalists.
The timeline was created by Councilor David Fischer, who the council named as facilitator.In March, councilors created an ad seeking “a creative, proactive leader” for the post left vacant by John Anderson, 50, who was discharged by the town without cause.
