Linda Boucher has been appointed temporary treasurer and tax collector
while the selectmen search for a permanent replacement for Ann Vandal,
who resigned at the end of 2002. Boucher, a resident of Billerica, has
served as the assistant treasurer/collector in Carlisle for the past four
years. She has taken courses sponsored by the Massachusetts Treasurer/Collectors
Association for three years and will be eligible to take the written exam
for certification as a Massachusetts treasurer/collector in August.
The biggest current challenge, she says, is being short-handed.
