Manchester police chief a finalist for Somerville job
MANCHESTER - Police Chief David Mara is one of two finalists for the job of Somerville, Mass., police chief; the other finalist is Somerville Deputy Chief of Operations David Fallon.
"I'm pleased, but I am still focused on doing my job as chief in Manchester," said Mara.
The two men made the cut from the four semi-finalists after a public hearing last month and further interviews by city officials.
The mayor and a team of city officials will make site visits July 28 and 31.
Somerville Mayor Joseph A. Curtatone expects to present the new chief of police to the Somerville Board of Alderman at the board's Aug. 28 meeting.
