Eldridge said it’s all about communicating with the Town Council, town staff and residents. If chosen, he said, he would emphasize openness with the public.
That includes dealing with union contracts and the employees in those unions.
“I’ve always had good relationships with unions,” Edridge said. “I’m not afraid to tell the unions we don’t have the money. I would do the best for my employees as I possibly can, but it has to be within reason and what we can afford. It’s a juggling act.”
Residents were able to write down comments following the forum or send comments or questions to councilors via the town website. The public is also invited to send comments or questions to Town Council through the town’s website.
On Monday, Osborne said he and fellow councilors received good reports on the search process.
“We’ve received a lot of positive feedback,” he said.
Osborne said the Town Council’s original goal was to name a new administrator by July 1, but the group would take more time if needed.
The group was scheduled to hold another nonpublic meeting this week.
