Why would anyone want to be...

Post by T on Sat Sep 21, 2013 10:02 am

...a town manager.  

Their average "lifespan" is what, two years?  Initially, they are beloved, but eventually reviled.  They never do anything right.  The abuse town managers endure by the people who don't get their way is unreasonable and unnecessary. Even when they decide they've had enough and gracefully resign, they get a kick in the ass as they go out the door.

Town managers are not elected, political officials.  The are employees.

All of the good people of Rumford wish Carlo Puiia the best.  The rest of you can go to hell.

Former Rumford town manager Puiia hired to lead Dixfield

DIXFIELD — Carlo Puiia, Rumford's former longtime tax collector and its town manager of more than four years, was hired as Dixfield town manager, Angela M. Varnum, deputy treasurer and payroll administrator, said Friday morning.

"We're very pleased to have him," Mac Gill, selectmen chairman, said Friday. "He is outstanding and came with glowing recommendations from many people in the Rumford area. He is also a proven quality in the area and he has no blind areas."

"We were absolutely tickled to death to have him apply," Gill said.

"We think we have made a wonderful choice," he said. "Carlo is experienced, he had glowing recommendations, and he came down here and met with the office staff and they were very pleased with him.

"He's very calm and a conscientious person who doesn't jump to conclusions," Gill said. "That's what we want."

"This was an opportunity right here in the River Valley and they were very welcoming to me," Puiia said.

Congratulations to Carlo, Dixfield has gained a highly respected man who will give it his best.  It is a shame he was treated the way he was in Runford by the group of individuals who were responsible for his departure.

Unfortunately, there is an active, fact-free Tea Party in Dixfield as there is in Rumford.

Good luck Carlo!

I wonder how long it will take for Dixfield's Tea Party to rear its ugly head and go after Carlo?

Dixfield selectmen unanimously confirm Puiia as town manager

DIXFIELD — The Board of Selectmen unanimously voted Monday evening to appoint Carlo Puiia as town manager.

Police Chief Richard Pickett said near the end of the board meeting that he was “thrilled to hear Carlo would be our new town manager.”

“I think he's going to do a fine job,” Pickett said.

Puiia was also appointed town treasurer, tax collector, town clerk, road commissioner and assistant welfare administrator.
