Buzzards Bay resident Joseph J. Carrara Sr. is the newest member of the Bourne Board of Assessors.
The announcement of Mr. Carrara’s appointment was made by town administrator Thomas M. Guerino during the Tuesday, June 10 meeting of the Bourne Board of Selectmen. Bourne’s town charter grants Mr. Guerino the authority to appoint members to the board of assessors.
Mr. Carrara replaces longtime member J. Malcolm Whitney of Monument Beach.
The appointment is for a three-year term, Mr. Guerino said.
He noted that Mr. Carrara has 25 years of experience in the real estate business.
“He is a longtime, active participant in the community,” Mr. Guerino said.
In making the appointment, Mr. Guerino thanked fellow candidates Richard W. Conron of Mashnee Road and town engineer Michael E. Leitzel for their interest in serving on the board.
