WESTBOROUGH – The town of Northborough’s Finance Director/Town Accountant Jason Little has accepted a position in the town of Westborough as its finance director.
The Select Board concurred with Town Manager Kristi Williams’ appointment of Little during their Sept. 26 meeting.
“I was thrilled to get the opportunity to interview for the position and even more thrilled to learn I was going to be on the agenda for this appointment tonight,” Little said.
Little will replace Leah Talbot, who will be retiring at the end of this month. Talbot has worked for the town for 31 years.
According to Williams, the town went through a process for Talbot’s replacement, including two panel interviews with the town’s senior leadership and finance teams.
Little worked for Northborough for 15 years.
“Throughout my career, I’ve driven through the town of Westborough almost daily, and I’ve always thought that I would apply for the job here,” Little said. “I’m on cloud nine knowing I’m about to work here as well.”
Northborough Select Board Chair Mitch Cohen said he was happy for Little on the next step in his career.
“I’m sad to see him go of course, but can’t argue with his desire to focus entirely on Finance Director responsibilities, and to do so in another wonderful community,” Cohen said. “During his tenure, he helped assemble a stellar finance team which is more than capable of keeping Northborough’s books in great shape. Whoever is chosen to step into the position will undoubtedly find themselves working within a very professional organization. Congratulations to both Jason Little and the Town of Westborough.”
Little is the latest change to occur in Northborough’s Town Hall following the departure of both Town Administrator John Coderre and Assistant Town Administrator Becca Meekins.
