Selectmen have chosen Scott Lambiase, Duxbury’s Director of Operations, to be Abington’s next Town Manager.
The board voted unanimously Monday night to make an offer to Lambiase, a Whitman resident and former selectman in that town.
A subcommittee consisting of selectmen Tim Chapin and Kevin DiMarzio, along with the town’s labor counsel, now must negotiate a contract with Lambiase.
Abington selectmen interviewed four candidates recommended by the Town Manager Search Committee: Lambiase; Jeremy Caudle, Budget Manager for Mesa County, Colorado; Lincoln Heineman, of Scituate, the Finance Director for the Town of Hanover; and Michael Mullen, of Rockland, the County Director in the Norfolk County Commissioner’s Office.
Lambiase has worked with for the Town of Duxbury since 2005, and also serves as the town’s chief procurement officer. He was a selectman in Whitman from 2012 to 2019, and currently serves on the town’s Finance Committee.
Selectmen also voted to name Caudle as runner-up, and Heineman as second runner-up, in case negotiations with Lambiase are unsuccessful.
