Last week, State Representative Josh Cutler and State Senator Vinny deMacedo presented the selectman with the state legislation, officially beginning the era of the "town manager" form of government. Selectmen are creating a special committee to find the best person for the job, but meanwhile, they have appointed Town Administrator Ed Thorne to fill the position of Acting Town Manager. Mr. Thorne is now responsible for most town operations. PTN sat down with the new Acting Town Manager to get to know a little more about our changing local government.
