Veterans Director Named

I have selected a Veterans Agent to replace the retired Edward Hoppy Curran. After a search committee made a recommendation I will send the name of Thomas Hargreaves to the City Council as the next Veterans Agent. From the Press Release announcing Mr. Hargreaves.

After an exhaustive search, Mayor William M. Manzi, III. is pleased to announce the appointment of Thomas H. Hargreaves as the City’s new Veterans Services Director. Mr. Hargreaves was the unanimous choice of the hiring committee, which consisted of several veterans groups, city councilors and human resources staff.

Thomas H. Hargreaves is a life-long Methuen resident and an Honorably Discharged Viet Nam era Army Veteran. He is also a life member of American Legion Post 122 in Methuen. He is currently employed as the Local Veterans Employment Representative at the ValleyWorks Career Center. He is a graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Lowell and the National Veterans Training Institute in Denver, CO.

“Tom has a wealth of experience with veterans issues and he will be a great asset to the Department and the City,” Manzi said. “He comes highly recommended by the veterans community and by state and local officials. I know that he will hit the ground running and do an excellent job.”

Mayor Manzi is submitting the appointment to the City Council for confirmation at its November 8th meeting. Mr. Hargreaves is expected to begin work in mid-November.
