Newburyport Daily News

---- — NEWBURY — The Finance Committee is seeking a registered voter to replace Frank Wetenkamp, who has resigned because he has accepted a job in Florida.

The successful candidate should also be free from conflicts of interest. Specifically, committee members must not be elected officials, town employees or a member of a paid board or committee. The Finance Committee is a volunteer board.

Interested candidates should submit their qualifications to the selectmen’s office with copies to the town administrator and Finance Committee chairman no later than Monday, March 4. Questions may be directed to Remley at or 978-465-0922.
