Hart said Smith would be a great addition.
“I look forward to working with him,” he said.
Smith said the first six months on the job will be a learning curve. He said he plans to meet with employees and hear their concerns and hopes for the town.
He said Londonderry has a lot of exciting things in the pipeline, including the proposed Woodmont Commons development and the Pettengill Road project. The town has a lot of potential and opportunities.
Keeping economic development on the front burner is also key, he said.
Smith also will do a lot of listening and learning.
“There are a lot of things I don’t know,” he said. “I will do more listening than anything.”
