The two candidates to be Gorham’s next town manager already work in Maine municipalities.

David Cole, who has been Gorham’s town manager for 23 years, will retire this fall. The two finalists to replace him are Ephrem Paraschak, the town manager of Naples, and Michael Murray, Portland’s island and neighborhood administrator.

Each candidate will meet the town’s department heads and the school superintendent June 8. The town will host an informal meet-and-greet for the public from 6:30 to 7:30 p.m. the same day at Town Hall.

A second round of interviews will be held June 13, and a final decision will be announced the next week.
