Broderick working on 3rd term administration

Nov. 20—ANDERSON — With the start of his third term as mayor of Anderson, Thomas Broderick Jr. is working on putting his administrative team in place.

"Right now, I'm taking time to catch up on the day-to-day activities," Broderick said Monday. "Working on what the new team will look like. I want to make sure we address the areas of concern from the community."

He said there will be some changes to the administrative team starting in January.

"I'm happy with our team of people," Broderick said.

He said open positions include park superintendent to replace Jama Donovan and an assistant police chief following the retirement of Warren Warren.

"With us moving into the trustee building, we added $700,000 to the Park Department budget to hire two or three more people for that facility," Broderick said.

He said there are several openings on a number of city boards that must be filled at the start of the year.

Four years ago, Broderick made few changes in the administration.
