Gilford says goodbye to outgoing executive assistant

January 13, 2021
The selectmen gave a fond farewell to a longtime employee before she went to serve another town.

Former Executive Assistant Angela Bovill recently took the position of Administrative Assistant for Moultonborough's board of selectmen. Her last meeting with the Gilford board was on Dec. 16, 2020, and she received warm wishes on her new path.

Selectman Gus Benavides recognized Bovill's years of service with Gilford.

"She's done a great and amazing job," Benavides said. "It is a breath of fresh air to deal with her. No matter what the situation is, we can count on her to be positive about it, even in this worst of times, through COVID, any situation."

He said so many other departments and boards in the town have greatly appreciated her work.

Bovill lives in Moultonborough and Benavides said they "cannot blame her" for wanting a position with a much shorter commute.

"We definitely understand that, and we wish her well," Benavides said. "Our loss is their gain and again, Angela, on behalf of the Board of Selectmen and the town of Gilford thank you for everything you've done, and we couldn't ask for a better employee than you have been and I really, really thank you from the bottom of our hearts."

Bovill received applause from the selectmen and town officials.

"Thank you; I appreciate it," Bovill said.

Town Administrator Scott Dunn echoed Benavides' words.

"I think she knows how much she's meant to me over the past years and how much we're gonna miss her and how much we have appreciated her," Dunn said. "We'll leave it at that."

According to the minutes of the Dec. 17 Moultonborough selectmen's meeting, board chair Kevin Quinlan announced Bovill would take the position of Administrative Assistant after longtime Administrative Assistant Hope Kokas retired. Bovill started her position on Dec. 28, 2020.
