Younger Misses Out Being Winchester's Town Manager
Belmont's Town Administrator also not selected for North Andover's top town post.
The Winchester Board of Selectmen Thursday night, Oct. 27, selected Richard Howard, Malden's current mayor, as the town's next Town Manager, skipping over fellow finalist Belmont's Town Administrator Tom Younger.
This was the second time this month that Younger was in the last group to become a Town Manager but failed to garner the votes. Two weeks ago, Younger lost out to Andrew Maylor, the Swampscott Town Administrator, for the position in North Andover.
The other finalists for the Winchester post was Andrew Bisignani, Saugus Town Manager. Maylor was also in consideration for the Winchester position before being hired in North Andover.
Forrest Fontana, chairman of the Winchester Board of Selectmen, said, “Our town was privileged to have such highly qualified and talented final candidates to choose among."
"Mr. Bisignani, Mr. Maylor and Mr. Younger are all true stewards for their peer towns, and epitomize all that is good about our public leaders.”
