Sean Fitzgerald, Swampscott's new town administrator visited rotary this past week.
For the past nine years,  Sean Fitzgerald has served as town manager of Plaistow, a town with 7,800 inhabitants, 65 employees and a $7.8 million municipal budget. Before his town-manager tenure, he was chief of staff to Mayor Michael Bonfanti in Peabody, a city with a population of 52,000, 2,600 employees and a $130 million operating budget.
The lifelong resident of the North Shore said working in Swampscott will give him a chance to spend more time with his family. Mr. Fitzgerald spent much of his childhood in Swampscott. His grandmother was a nurse at Hadley Elementary School for decades and his mother grew up on Bay View Drive.
