WESTON – At their meeting on July 10th, the Selectmen appointed Leon A. Gaumond, Jr. to serve as Weston’s next Town Manager, subject to negotiation of a contract. It is anticipated that Mr. Gaumond will begin mid-September, which will allow for a two-week overlap with Weston’s current Town Manager.
Mr. Gaumond currently serves as the Town Administrator for the Town of Sturbridge. He formerly served as Town Administrator for the Town of West Boylston and the Executive Secretary for the Town of East Longmeadow, as well as serving as Chief of Staff for State Rep. Paul Caron. The Selectmen said their decision was very close, as Weston would have been well-served by all three finalists, but Mr. Gaumond was selected due to his particular background and expertise.
The three finalists were recommended by the Town Manager Screening Committee and were interviewed by the Selectmen at their meeting on June 25th. Those interviews can be seen online courtesy of Weston Media Center (35:35 mm).
After working for the Town of Weston for 34 years, Town Manager Donna VanderClock’s last day in Weston will be September 28th. A public farewell party is being planned for September 26th.
