Gadway presented her letter of resignation to the board at its September meeting.
Rena Bosley was appointed town clerk/tax collector on Nov. 7 by the Town Council.
“I’m very impressed with her” work so far, Ross said in an earlier interview.
“I’d like to thank her (Gadway) for many years of service to the Town of Mooers,” he added.
Gadway spoke well of her successor.
“She’s (Bosley) a very intelligent person. I think she will do very well unless she takes the wrong path,” she said. “I wish everybody well.”
Of her first month on the job, Bosley said, “it’s been very interesting.”
Bosley’s appointment ends with the completion of Gadway’s term at the close of 2013, so the post will be up for vote next November.
