From the Eagle Tribune;

Atkinson to hire town administrator soon

By Eric Parry

ATKINSON — Town officials said they will hire a new administrator soon.

A committee of three current selectmen and six former selectmen has reviewed the 30 applications for the town administrator job and expects the interviews to begin shortly, Selectman Bill Friel said.

"We should have somebody in place pretty quickly," he said.

Selectmen asked all former selectmen who had worked with previous town administrators to suggest who among the candidates would be a good fit for the town, Friel said.

Selectman William Bennett said they would prefer someone who has experience working in New Hampshire town government.

The applicants come from various backgrounds, including some expected to be too expensive for Atkinson. Bennett attributed the large candidate pool to the weak economy.

The board began reviewing the applications in June and has said it would like to hire someone as soon as possible.

"We're refining where we want to go and the person we're looking for," Bennett said.

This is the first time in recent years the selectmen have taken on a search for a town administrator entirely by themselves. In previous searches, the town hired the Local Government Center to screen applications. That service cost $5,000.

A candidate, whose name was not released, was offered the job in April. But when that person gave notice to the employer, Atkinson's offer was matched. That candidate remained from the search when the most recent town administrator, Steven Angelo, was hired. No salary range was specifically stated in the job advertisement.

Atkinson has been without a town administrator since late January when Angelo quit after only a few months on the job. Before Angelo, Atkinson went through two town administrators within a year.

Yup, EMPTY SUIT is back. Can't discuss the issues so he posts foolishness. Wonder if this suit has a badge on it or just one of the other plaintiffs?

The attempt to disrupt the blog by posting nonsense is aimed directly at the voters right to know and discuss issues in Atkinson.

Why isn't the moderator deleting this foolishness?

To the repetitive poster.

Plain obnoxious. You sound like an idiot. You're defeating yourself. Theres no need for anyone else to do it. You give credence to your opposition that paints you as a looney. They don't have to say anything but point at your posts and say see what I mean?

Hey, what do you expect of defendants in a major lawsuit? If this is an example of how they run our town, then it's time to vote them out of office.

In the case of Phil, well since the selectmen don't appoint him, it's time to make it an elected position. That would bring a nice clean sweeping change to town government.

Small towns everywhere need a clean sweeping.

New Jersey is divided into hundreds of tiny fiefdoms, where part-time elected officials without much education and with small salaries wield considerable power, and the heady mix of arrogance, control and promised payoffs seems to dissolve their intelligence and caution....

Finally, the critics of this blog show there true colors and intelligence!

You really don't understand the political base he has in town. It may not be you or me, but he's got probably 500 senior votes every election. Maybe more depending on the issue. He gave out 2000 rides last year.

No matter what you write on the blog, they keep getting free rides, lunches and concerts and medical stuff. They aren't about to give THAT up. Other than your hard earned tax dollars paying for his gig, what have you done for the seniors lately? And one more thing. All the bad press in the world won't change their minds. At least not most of em. He's been handing out political favors for years.

The point is chief will gladly convert over to an elected position. He'll win easy cause his supporters show up! Your foolish to think electing a police chief will solve things. Dontcha remember the picture in the tribune after the last citizen petition for a full time chief got massacred at deliberative session?

The LE of a male with a pacemaker is 91 mo. "Ask not... it tolls for the" (j Donne)

Yes but here is the big lie;

The Seniors would get that stuff ANYWAY!

No matter who is director of elderly affairs, they would get that stuff, because it is a taxpayer funded program!

The voters have voted for it repeatedly. So whether it is Phil, or Billy, or Mark Accard who is director of elderly affairs the elderly will receive the same benefits. The only difference is the transparency of the program.

Your right, when phil stands up and tells the elderly that he is the only one looking out for their interests and if he wasnt there they would be left out in the cold, that is a lie. Thats like saying if he wasnt chief we wouldnt have police protection.

If the Chief's position were made elected, Phil couldn't run because he would have to pass all the qualifications of a fulltime Chief by the Police Standards Board. Same if the Selectmen appointed him. That's why they haven't re-appointed him in years.

Isn't it time to replace an unqualified police chief with one that is qualified to hold that position?

Perception is all the wonderful taxpayer funded goodies wouldn't be there if not for the god of EA.

He single handedly delivers it all as if it were coming out of his pocket. Its sad but an effective scam.

There's a big difference between an election for a FT chief vs a Part time chief. I agree he could not run for the full time chief but Baldwin probably could.

In order to eliminate the Elderly Affairs Department Scam, citizens of Atkinson must unite and demand that department be completely removed from the Police Department. Phil Consentino and any police officer should not be allowed to do anything except police work.

This scam must come to an end.
