Five Candidates Vie For Chance To Collect Taxes From Rumford’s Four Remaining Taxpayers

RUMFORD — Tax Collector Thomas B. Bourret and four others are seeking the two-year tax collector and constable seat at the town elections Tuesday. In February, tax collector and constable John Giambattista resigned to take a job elsewhere and selectmen appointed his deputy tax collector, Bourret, to fill his remaining term. Now, Bourret and Amy L. Bernard, Kim S. Cocca, Cindy Kelley and Jeremy Vashaw are vying for the jobs. Bourret, 39, a Rumford native, lives on Knox Street, and has owned the Maine Press Printing Co. in Rumford for 19 years. He served as deputy tax collector since 2009. He said Wednesday that he wants to continue. “For me, it’s about service,” Bourret said. “As a successful Rumford business owner, I’ve developed a strong commitment to our community. Voting for me ensures a smooth transition, whereas someone else is going to have to learn the job and that’s something I don’t think the citizens of Rumford want,” he said.
