The position is nothing new to First. The Durham man had served as New Gloucester’s town planner from 2009 through February 2014 when he was named full-time town manager, replacing Sumner Field, who retired.

He left the post in the spring of 2017 for personal reasons.

First holds a master’s degree in community land planning from the State University of New York.
