Clinton Swett, assistant assessor in Brunswick, appointed Cape Elizabeth tax assessor

The Town Council on May 1, 2017 appointed Clinton J. Swett, assistant assessor for the town of Brunswick, as Cape Elizabeth's tax assessor.

Swett replaces Matthew Sturgis, who left the assessor's job to become town manager in January.

Swett has served as assistant assessor in Brunswick since 2010, after holding the same position in Freeport since 2002. Before that, he was a computer operator for Central Maine Power in Augusta, and has computer operations experience in Ohio dating back to 1983.

He is a graduate of Portland High School and has a degree in business administration organizational leadership from Southern New Hampshire University. He received certification as a Maine assessor in 2005.

A resident of Freeport, Swett has served on that town's board of (zoning) appeals since 2012; and on the Cumberland County Board of Assessment Review since 2014.

Cape Elizabeth assessor duties will no longer be shared with Scarborough, as they were when Sturgis held the position. Swett's starting date is May 15, at an annual salary of $70,000.
