Essex County Hires New CAO

Essex County didn't have to look far to find its new chief administrative officer.

Longtime treasurer Rob Maisonville has been promoted and will replace the retiring Brian Gregg.

Maisonville has been working for the county for 27-years.

Essex County Warden Tom Bain says the search for a new CAO was a very detailed and extensive process. 

"We have every confidence that he has the vision and dedication to fully serve the residents in Essex County," says Bain.

Maisonville will begin his new job September 7th.
