Upton Residents Vote to Keep Treasurer/Collector Elected

A majority vote by Upton voters will keep the Treasurer/Collector's position an elected post rather than an appointed one. The discussion and vote came during the town's May 8 Annual Town Meeting.

Article 10 on the Town Meeting warrant was brought forward by the Board of Selectmen after an auditor's report had continually made the recommendation to change the position from elected to appointed. Part of the report stated "While the current Treasurer/ Collector possesses the skills necessary to support this position, future elected Treasure/ Collectors may not. The Town has less than 7,000 residents, which limits the available talent pool capable of being elected as Town Treasurer Collector."

The Board reiterated to voters that the change had nothing to do with current Treasurer/Collector's Ken Glowacki's abilities but more about the town's future. The Board has stated repeatedly that if and when Glowacki leaves his post, there may not be a qualified resident willing to run for the position and that an appointment would eliminate that risk.

"Our operating budget was $19 million this year. What business would have a chief financial officer by chance?" asked Selectman Ken Picard. "This allows us to take control of finances." Picard added that 150 communities in the state have appointed Treasurer/Collectors.
