Town administrator resigns after a year

Henniker's town administrator has resigned a year after taking the post.

Chuck Connell offered his resignation last week, and Selectman Kris Blomback said the administrator's last day will be Nov. 30. Connell said he's leaving for retirement and called his reasoning 'both personal and important.'

'It isn't something that I had planned for a long period of time. Nor was it instantaneous,' he said. 'It was just the right time to make the decision.'

Connell joined the town staff in November after longtime town administrator Peter Flynn resigned in August 2011 to take a job with the town of New Boston. At the time, Flynn said he left with no hard feelings, but added that the job had become more stressful due to clashing personalities on the board of selectmen.

The board accepted Connell's resignation with 'heavy regrets,' according to Blomback, who said the administrator had been a 'consummate professional.'

He said the board is in the process of establishing a subcommittee to help find a replacement, adding that Connell will be involved in the process. While Blomback hopes to have a replacement in place by Connell's departure, he said the timeline may be difficult to meet.
