Town Manager Contract Nearly Final
Truro probably has a new town manager. Though the contract has not been signed, and therefore is not yet public information, it sounds like Darrin Tangeman, the city manager of Woodland Park, Colo., has been hired.
On Oct. 13, Select Board Chair Robert Weinstein said contract negotiations had reached “a successful conclusion,” but it would still take a few days for the contract to be signed and finalized.
Tangeman, 46, a former Green Beret, was the fourth choice brought to the select board following two national searches. They voted to hire him on Sept. 22 pending contract talks. The board members raved about his medical experience while in the military, as well as his people skills, and his many degrees and certificates, including three master’s degrees: in public and security policy analysis, public administration, and business administration.
He is married with two teenage daughters.
Early Voting Basics
In-person early voting for the Nov. 3 presidential election is Oct. 17 to Oct. 30, Saturdays and Sundays from 10 a.m. to noon, and Mondays through Fridays from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m., with special hours on Saturday, Oct. 24, from 2 to 4 p.m. and 7 to 8 p.m. (That day there will be no morning voting.) Voting will be at town hall, 24 Town Hall Road.
You can also vote early by mail by first sending in an application, available at truro-ma.gov, then click on the town clerk’s tab. You can email this back to the town clerk at [email protected] after signing it, or drop it off at a drop box located outside town hall.
An early voting package will be sent to you with a pre-addressed return envelope. Complete the affidavit and mail your ballot to the town clerk or deliver it to the drop box. If you are using the U.S. mail allow one week before Nov. 3 for delivery. —K.C. Myers
