'Shapiro for Chief' signs showing up in Webster
WEBSTER - Signs supporting one candidate for police chief have popped up in town.
The Concord Monitor reports the blue campaign posters reading “Shapiro for Police Chief” have popped up on 80 or so lawns in town. The signs support Webster police Officer Daniel Shapiro for chief.
Chief Robert Dupuis resigned from his part-time position in February. Dupuis was collecting a $50,000 annual pension on top of the salary he was paid in Webster because of his part-time status. The town’s next police chief will be full-time, following the recommendation of a committee that was formed in late 2015 and a warrant article passed at town meeting 2015.
In Webster, the application window for the full-time position closed March 23, and according to April meeting minutes, the select board has been meeting and interviewing candidates since then.
