Manager milestone



Although it was second out of the gate in needing to find a new town manager, Cape Elizabeth beat South Portland in filling its big chair, as Town Clerk Debra Lane, right, swore in former tax assessor Matthew Sturgis on Monday, Jan. 30, as the sixth full-time manager to serve the town since 1959. South Portland, meanwhile, is still looking to fill its top job. Two finalists sat for second interviews Jan. 26 and the city council held a closed-door meeting Monday, Jan. 30, to consider the candidates. However, as of the deadline for this week's Sentry, a new manager had not been named. "I hope to announce something soon," Mayor Patti Smith wrote in an email sent Tuesday evening, Jan. 31, in response to an enquiry.
