Richmond Still Looking For Town Clerk

Andy McKeever

RICHMOND, Mass. - Nobody wants to be the Town Clerk.

Since former Town Clerk David W. Morrison died in January, the town has been unable to find a replacement. At the initial deadline of Feb. 18 not a single resume was submitted, according to Town Administrator Matt Kerwood. The town has now extended the deadline in hopes to fill it.

"A handful of people did request the full job description but as of the deadline nobody applied," Kerwood said Wednesday. "We're hopeful a candidate will come forward."

Resumes are now due by March, 11 for consideration and a full job description can be received by Kerwood. The candidate must live in town be be registered or can be registered to vote. If no candidates come forward Kerwood said he is unsure what the town will do.

"I was appointed Assistant Town Clerk prior to this and now I'm doing Town Clerk duty on top of my own work," Kerwood said. "There are some theory of what plan B will be but we don't know for sure."

Kerwood said he posted the position at various locations in town and is not sure why there is not much interest. With the extention Kerwood is optimistic that the town will find the right person.

Morrison served as Town Clerk since 2006.
