SANGERVILLE, Maine — A Corinna woman with an extensive background in accounting has been hired as Sangerville’s new town manager.
Michelle Dumoulin, 54, will begin her new duties on Monday, June 21, at a yearly salary of $33,000 plus a benefit package.
“We selected her because of her experience,” Board of Selectmen Chairman Lance Burgess said Monday of Dumoulin. He said the town received 23 applications for the position vacated by the resignation of Joseph Clark.
A search committee interviewed four of the candidates and narrowed the field to two candidates, both of whom were interviewed Friday during a special board meeting. The board voted unanimously to hire Dumoulin.
Dumoulin worked in the accounting field for 20 years for some major firms, including Titleist Golf Division and Raytheon Data Systems, before she moved to Maine. She also served as a mathematics teacher in Massachusetts and at Nokomis Regional High School in Newport and served five years as Corinna’s town clerk.
“I love Sangerville. It is a beautiful town,” Dumoulin said Monday. She said she is aware that the town is dealing with some difficult issues, including a pending lawsuit and a gentlemen’s club proposed for Route 23.
“I’m going to do my best to help support the town in the character they want for the town,” Dumoulin said.
