Ted Carr will not be Keeper of the Cohasset Clock

We’re sure Carr (former two-term Cohasset Selectman) figured it would be a cute job to add to his resume when he applied for this position, and the Acting Town Manager probably didn’t know what the job entailed –climbing up to the steeple of the First Parish Church once a week and actually being able to…

Selectmen re-vote Milanoski’s contract 3-1
