On February 13th, the Board of Selectmen received notice that Town Manager Donna VanderClock will be retiring this September. Ms. VanderClock has served as Weston's Town Manager for the past 13 years but has been with the Town for 34 years.
The process of finding a new Town Manager is outlined in Chapter 80 of the Acts of 2001, which established the position in Weston. The Board of Selectmen has appointed a screening committee of five Weston residents to work with a search consultant to recruit and recommend a list of final candidates, each of whom will be interviewed in open meeting. The five screening committee members are Jeri Cooper, former member of the School Committee, Finance Committee, and Dog Committee; Ann Leibowitz, former member of the Finance Committee and Board of Selectmen; Richard Manley, formerly on the School Committee; Stephen Ober, formerly on the Finance Committee and current Chair of the Community Preservation Committee; and Thomas Palmer, former Finance Committee member and co-chair of the Josiah Smith Tavern and Old Library Working Group.
Ms. VanderClock is Weston's second Town Manager. Prior to the establishment of the position, the Board of Selectmen was assisted by J. Ward Carter, Weston’s Town Administrator for 52 years.
