Bourn resigns from Triton School Committee

There is an open seat for a Rowley resident on the Triton Regional School Committee due to last week’s resignation of Lane Bourn, who was serving his second term on the committee.

“I have very much enjoyed the privilege and honor of serving the students, families and employees of the Triton Regional School District and the people of the Town of Rowley,” said Bourn in his resignation letter. Bourn, who will be moving to another state, also resigned from his other town positions, such as the Democratic Town Committee.

The selectmen’s office is now accepting resumes/letters of interest for the position, which runs until the next annual election. While normally a position where one must run for the office, the decision this time will be made by the Board of Selectmen. Interested candidates should submit information to the board by 4 p.m. on Thursday, Oct. 18. Applicants must be residents of Rowley.
