Hazen Blodgett Appointed Interim Town Manager

PITTSBORO, NC - At today’s specially called meeting of the Pittsboro Board of Commissioners, the Board unanimously voted to select Mr. Hazen Blodgett as the Interim Town Manager for the Town of Pittsboro following the resignation of outgoing Town Manager Chris Kennedy.

Mr. Blodgett, who retired this year following nearly two decades of service as the Town Manager for Matthews, North Carolina, spoke briefly to the Board and audience, saying he was excited to take on this new role. Mr. Blodgett’s first day as Interim Town Manager will be Monday, September 19th, 2022. September 19th will also serve as Chris Kennedy’s last day. Throughout the next few weeks, Mr. Kennedy will spend time getting Mr. Blodgett “up to speed” on the issues, policies, and priorities of the Town’s Staff and the Board of Commissioners.

Mr. Blodgett will officially swear his oath of office as Interim Town Manager on his first day of employment with the Town.
