WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Middleborough Board of Selectmen last night officially selected Town Manager Peter L. Fohlin to replace 22-year veteran John F. Healy as town manager.

"He was the successful candidate," said Selectman Wayne C. Perkins, who headed the town manager search committee. "His overall management style is something that would fulfill our needs at this time."

Fohlin is on a two-week vacation in Martha's Vineyard and was unable to be reached for comment.

Middleborough, a community 38 miles from Boston in the southeastern corner of the state, is the second largest town in the Commonwealth by land area and is currently making headlines for its negotiations with the Mashpee Wampanoag tribe to build a casino in town.

Perkins said the Selectmen were impressed with Fohlin's experience and dedication, both as Williamstown town manager for the last seven years and also in Tisbury, where Fohlin was previously the executive secretary to the Board of Selectmen.

"We were impressed by his attitude, his consensus building, his ability to work with people, his ability to get things done, that he works on a five year plan, just his overall style," said Perkins.

According to Diane Henault, secretary to the Middleborough Board of Selectmen, the other candidate for the position, Richard H. Agnew of Scituate, dropped out of the race.

"It's not like they thought 'Now we're stuck,'" said Henault. "They pretty much all agreed that either [man] would do a good job. They selected Fohlin and they're comfortable with that decision.""

According to Henault, Fohlin had yet to be contacted about the position by 11 a.m. this morning, but Perkins said he is hopeful Fohlin will be planning a move to the eastern part of the state.

"The indications I had before were that he would accept the position," said Perkins.
