Maynard Announces Acting Town Administrator
MAYNARD — The Town of Maynard is pleased to announce that Andrew Scribner-MacLean has been appointed as the town’s Acting Town Administrator.
He will replace Kevin Sweet, who has accepted a position as the Wrentham Town Administrator. Sweet has worked in Maynard for almost 9 years, serving the past five years as town administrator.
Scribner-MacLean has served as the assistant town administrator and executive director of municipal services in Maynard since 2013, and has more than 25 years of experience in municipal management and higher education.
“I have truly enjoyed my time in Maynard and will miss my colleagues and community members,” Sweet said. “I am confident that Andrew is well-equipped to handle his new responsibilities and know he will continue to do great things for the town.”
Scribner-MacLean holds a bachelor’s and master’s degree from the University of Massachusetts Lowell, as well as a graduate certificate in local government leadership from Suffolk University.
“I am thrilled at the opportunity to continue serving the Town of Maynard in this new role and wish Kevin well in his new venture,” Scribner-MacLean said. “Residents can rest assured that this will be a smooth transition and we will continue working hard to keep up with all of the good work we have going in Maynard.”
As assistant town administrator, Scribner-MacLean works extensively on economic development in town, oversees human resources, manages municipal services and has coordinated projects such as grant writing, migrating technology to virtual servers and moving town permitting processes online. He was also instrumental in reorganizing the Council on Aging into a full-service department for local residents.
A search committee has been formed to begin the process of hiring a permanent town administrator, which is expected to take approximately four to six months.
