New Town Manager hired
First Warden Ken Lacoste last night announced that the Town Council had entered into a five year contract with Maryanne Crawford to be Block Island’s new Town Manager. The decision to hire Crawford was unanimous.
Crawford is currently the Chief Financial Officer of the South Kingstown School system. She will succeed Interim Town Manager Jim Kern.
“I would like to open Maryanne Crawford to the town service and we look forward to working with her and look forward to getting her on board in a few weeks,” said Lacoste.
