Selectmen this week said they would push to change the town clerk's position from an elected one into an appointed one. The change will require voter approval at both town meeting and the polls.
Marie Chiofolo left the position for a job in Stoughton this month, and Assistant Town Clerk Gail Bernardo will assume her duties for the time being.
Selectman Jim Lehan said the clerk should have the same status as the town treasurer and town administrator, which are both appointed positions. "I really don't see it as a political position," Lehan said. "It's an organizational position."
