Foxboro selects new town manager

February 22, 2014 by  

Town Administrator of Dedham, William Keegan, has recently been offered the position of the new Town Manager for Foxboro by its Board of Selectmen. No doubt the Board is using a variety of printing services to let the residents of the town become aware of their choice.

Keegan was among three finalists, with the other two being Jack Hathaway, Norfolk Town Administrator, and Frederic Turkington, former town administrator of Wayland. The vote for Keegan became unanimous after Selectmen James Devillis, whose first choice was Hathaway, joined the majority.

Although Keegan is very excited about the many opportunities that will be available to him in Foxboro, he commented that he has mixed emotions about the offer. He has enjoyed working with the community of Dedham and its boards but he believes that the position in Foxboro will provide him with many new challenges.

Keegan was Town Administrator of Seekonk prior to serving in Dedham. It is the town in which he lives so having a shorter commute will be an important factor in his accepting the position in Foxboro. Chairman of the Board of Selectmen Mark Sullivan and Selectman John Gray along with Labor Counsel for Foxboro Leo Peloquin will be working with Keegan to negotiate an employment contract. Keegan can start working for Foxboro on April 1st.

Town Clerk Robert Cutler was selected as acting Town Manager until a new manger takes over.
