Plainville clerk to retire after 33 years

Posted by Ralph Ranalli August 3, 2007 12:08 PM


Town Clerk Kathleen M. Sandland says she will retire after 33 years in office instead of seeking another term in April.

Sandland, who will turn 65 in December, was an assistant town clerk from 1972 to 1974, when she was elected to the clerk's position. She said several people have expressed an interest in running for the job next spring, but no one has announced definite plans.

Although some area towns have made the clerk an appointed position, Sandland said she hopes Plainville stays with an elected clerk.

"I feel very strongly about that," she said.
