Arthur Capello said he has been involved in municipal government for years and is currently a selectman in his hometown of Farmington. Prior to being elected selectman, he served on the Budget Committee.
Before accepting the job as Gilmanton's town administrator, Capello was the building inspector for the town of Wakefield and has a background in the building trades and was the director of real estate operation for a large Boston-based housing company.
He holds a Bachelor of Arts in Sociology from Fitchburg State University in Massachusetts.
Capello said he has been on the job for about a month and "loves it in Gilmanton."
"I have an open-door policy and value communication," Capello said, describing himself as "easy to get along with and friendly."
When asked if the time constraints he faces as a Farminton selectman could interfere with his duties in Gilmanton, he said he didn't think it would.
"I'm planning on staying in Farmington. If I'm elected to do something, I want to do that (for the people who elected him.)
