HANCOCK — Cheri Robinson took over as town clerk on March 30, succeeding Toni Dyer, who has gone to work as the human resources and payroll specialist for the city of Ellsworth.
A Gouldsboro resident, Robinson brings much experience in both municipal and state government, continuing to serve as a selectman in Gouldsboro and having served as that community’s town clerk in 2014-15. She is a dedimus justice licensed to swear in public officials such as notaries public. She also is a licensed insurance adjuster.
At their April 1 meeting, Hancock selectmen unanimously appointed Robinson as town clerk, registrar of voters, inland fisheries agent and bureau of motor vehicle agent.
In addition, the board voted to postpone annual Town Meeting, which would have taken place May 12, as well as town elections the day before, due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related rules on public gatherings. The board also voted to postpone the budget meetings until such a time when they can resume.
Robinson said selectmen are holding their regular meeting via the videoconferencing app Zoom. The link is included on the agenda when it is posted in advance at hancockme.org.
