Selectmen approve new contract for Morgado

By Genevieve Jinson, Community Reporter

Shrewsbury – The Board of Selectmen approved a three-year contract for Town Manager Daniel Morgado at its Sept.26 meeting. Morgado has been the Town Manager since 1997; his new contract will be effective as of Oct. 1 and conclude on Sept.  30, 2015.

The board recently completed an evaluation of Morgado’s performance in various categories. Maurice DePalo, the board’s chair, noted that Morgado’s rankings were all either “distinguished” or “excellent.”

“[Morgado] is certainly held in high regard by all the board members,” DePalo said.

He added that Morgado’s overall score on the evaluation is, “probably better than an A minus.”

In the area of overall management the board said that the manager was extremely accomplished.

In the personal and professional growth category, all of the board members agreed that Morgado is active in attending meetings, events and seminars.

“I don’t know how you can manage to teach a class at Clark [University] and still do what you do… you’ve managed to do that for a number of years,” DePalo commented.

“I think we’d like you to stay,” he added, tongue-in-cheek.

The other board members thanked Morgado for his work. Morgado in turn, thanked the town, its employees and the selectmen.

Morgado’s first stint in Shrewsbury’s town government was as an assistant to former Town Manager Richard D. Carney in 1980. He then went on to work in other municipalities before being named Shrewsbury’s Town Manager in 1997 after Carney retired after 40 years in that role.
