Long-time executive secretary Ted Kozak is not among the three finalists for the new town manager position.
The town approved a new charter in May, establishing the new position, which has more authority than an executive secretary's position.
Selectman Ron Clark, argued unsuccessfully that Kozak should have been included among the finalists.
“I think it was an incorrect decision to leave him off the finalist slate -- it was the fair and decent and smart thing to do after he’s got a proven track record for 17 years for essentially the same job,” said Clark. Kozak did not immediately return a call for comment.
