Carol Antonelli, Somerville Superintendent of Water and Sewer, has resigned her position to accept a similar post in Wakefield, Somerville officials announced yesterday.

Antonelli counts more than 30 years employed by Somerville, and leaves to become Business and Operations Manager for the Public Works Department for the town of Wakefield, according to a statement released by Mayor Joseph A. Curtone's office.

Effective Feb. 22 Ginger Barret, current Director of Administration and Finance at the commission, will assume the role of acting superintendent while the city searches for a permanent appointment, the statement said.

“Carol has been a valued employee for many years, and has helped lead the City through some particularly difficult challenges,” Mayor  Curtatone said. Antonelli saw the department through last year's major water main break in May, a boil-water order that resulted, and the converstion to wireless meters in the city, Curtatone said.
“In this case, Somerville’s loss is Wakefield’s gain, and we know that she will bring her great management skills and public relations ability to her new position.”

Ginger Barret, who has more than 20 years experience in municipal government, including stints in Ipswich and Boston, was hired in Somerville in 2005.
