HOOKSETT, NH — Andre Garron has been named new Town Administrator, effective May 30, 2019.
Garron was selected from a group of candidates who applied during the recent recruitment process coordinated and conducted by Municipal Resources Inc. He has spent more than 30 years working with local governments in New Hampshire.
He began his municipal career as the Community Relations Specialist in City of Lee’s Summit, MO. In 1988, he relocated to New Hampshire and continued his municipal government career serving NH communities as Planning and Economic Development Coordinator in Goffstown, Community Development Director in Londonderry, State Specialist, Economic Development at the University of NH Cooperative Extension and recently as Community Development Director/Assistant Town Manager in Salem.
And NFL fans may recall Garron was a running back and kick returner for the Kansas City Chiefs in the 1980s.
He earned his Bachelor’s Degree from the University of New Hampshire (Community Development), and Master’s Degree from Southern New Hampshire University (Community Economic Development).
“I thank Town Council for selecting me and am very excited for the opportunity to serve as Hooksett’s Town Administrator. I’ve always respected the community and think it has a very promising future. I look forward to being a part of it,” Garron said.
Garron will start work for the Town with an annual salary of $115,000. Garron and his wife of 32 years, Cindy, live in Bedford, and have two sons, Andre Jr. and Jordan.
The Town Council will host a reception in June for the public to meet their new Town Administrator. The date will be announced soon to “kick-off” this event. Did I mention Mr. Garron was a running back and kick returner for the Kansas City Chiefs?
