A new assistant town manager will begin working for the Town of Winthrop on Nov. 19. Town Manager Austin Faison has selected David Rodrigues, who has accepted the position with a $100,000 salary.
Rodrigues comes from Middlesex Sheriff’s office, where he served as director of the Civil Process Division. Before that, he was the assistant city solicitor for the City of Everett, where he worked with the community on the Encore Boston Harbor project.
“David brings a wealth of experience to the town manager’s office and he will be required to hit the ground running. Regardless of the Center Business District project, he will have a full plate and the opportunity to utilize his entire skillset,” Faison said.
