Interim Select Board Appointment – Following the sudden passing of our colleague, Jay Jacobs, last month, the Select Board will make an interim appointment. The appointment term runs to the next election (per State laws, RSA 669:61-669:63). So, in March, there will be two ballots: one for a 3-year term and a second to fill the remainder of Jay’s term through March 2023.
The board’s appointment process starts with inviting Harrisville residents who wish to be considered for this appointment to submit a letter of interest and resume to the Select Board Office. The letter should state why you are interested and what you think you can add to the Select Board operations during this interim period.
The board will accept applications until noon on Thursday, December 9. They should be sealed and should reference “Interim Select Board Appointment”. A decision on an appointment of an Interim Select Board, including whether an appointment is made at all, will be made no later than December 21.
