Manager announces Fort Williams Park coordinator, other new Community Services personnel

Kerry Kertes, longtime teacher at Cape Elizabeth schools and former acquatics director at the Richards Pool, has been named Fort Williams Park's first park coordinator.

Town Manager Matthew Sturgis announced the appointment of Kertes and other Community Services personnel additions at the Town Council's meeting Sept. 10, 2018.

As park coordinator, Kertes will work with food vendors, transportation and cruise-ship vendors, other town departments, the Fort Williams Park Committee, guests, and residents of Cape Elizabeth to ensure a safe, enjoyable experience at Fort Williams Park. He works under the supervision of Community Services and Fort Williams Park Director Kathy Raftice.

Kertes first moved to Cape Elizabeth in 1991 and served as acquatics director, then a teacher at Cape Elizabeth High School until 2011, when he moved to live and work in China and Singapore. He returned to Cape Elizabeth in 2016 and worked again at the High School before accepting the new coordinator's position in August.

In other personnel news, Sturgis announced that Jane Anderson is the town's new senior program coordinator at Community Services, and Peter Mullen is the new youth program coordinator.

Kathy Maxwell, most recently accounts payable supervisor, is now serving as deputy town clerk, Sturgis said.
