Andrews finalist for Maynard administrator

WENHAM — Town Administrator Mark Andrews has been named a finalist for the top position in Maynard.

As one of four finalists, Andrews interviewed with Maynard selectmen Monday night. Deliberations on the finalists are expected to begin Friday.

Andrews was hired in Wenham in March 2012 on an interim basis to replace outgoing Town Administrator Jeff Chelgren, who was hired in Marblehead. Andrews’ contract was extended for another year on May 21, as selectmen geared up for a town administrator search, which was promised when Chelgren left.

Andrews currently makes $100,000.

In extending Andrews’ contract, selectmen drew criticism from multiple residents for not pursuing a search sooner. Selectmen justified the delay, saying they wanted to get through Town Meeting and have time to properly conduct a search.

The other candidates in Maynard are Seekonk Town Administrator Pamela Nolan, Maynard’s Interim Town Administrator Kevin Sweet and former Salem, N.H., Town Manager Jonathan Sistare.

Before coming to Wenham, Andrews was town administrator in Wareham from 2009 to 2012.

Andrews could not be reached for comment yesterday.
