Belmont's Veteran Agent Set to Resign, Town Seeks Part-Time Replacement

John Maguranis is also Belmont's Animal Control Officer.

Belmont's Veterans Services agent John Maguranis is preparing to leave his position once the town finds a replacement for his position.

"I'll stay on the position until [the town] has someone in place because I don't want to [abandon] by fellow veterans," Maguranis told Belmont Patch Thursday, Dec. 12. 

Maguranis, who is also the town's animal control officer, did not provide a reason for his decision.

The town has begun the process of finding Maguranis' replacement by advertising a part-time position "providing veterans services, administration of veterans benefits, and outreach activities in the Town of Belmont," according to a letter from Belmont Town Administrator David Kale to the compliance officer of the state's Department of Veteran's Affairs. 

A 20-year veteran from the US Army, Maguranis has been the town's veterans agent since 2005. The Veterans Services agent is normally the first person a veteran initially contacts for advice and assistance.

Memo to TOB: You might want to find an animal CONTROL officer. This guy should have married a coyote. If a coyote was dragging your live dog away do you think he would shoot it ?? NOT A CHANCE !!! He has names for all his cute little pet coyotes. Not to mention the number of dog walkers with unleashed dogs that he allows to run wild because he's not able to get out his van. I certainly hope his "decision" was forced upon him.
