Wenham considers town clerk change


Reid said she is running unopposed for a fourth one-year term and is in a position to apply for the post if the Town Meeting article is passed.

Martins said the switch will give the town more flexibility to select candidates with experience and professional accreditation. She emphasized, however, that the proposed switch does not speak to the job performance of either the town clerk or tree warden.

“It is looking at those positions and seeing what is most efficient,” she said. “It will help us move forward.”

Annual Town Meeting starts at 1 p.m. Saturday at Buker School on School Street.

Staff writer Jonathan Phelps can be reached at 978-338-2527 or by email at Follow him on Twitter at JPhelps_SN.
