We would like to take this opportunity to thank Roy Sabourn for his many years of dedication and service to the Town of Thornton as a Selectmen for the last 16 years. Prior to holding the position of Selectman, Roy was also a member of the Planning Board for many years.

Roy has been on the Board of Selectmen since 2007, during that time he was appointed Chairman 4 times by his peers. He had also been delegated to represent the Board as the Enforcement Official and the Ex-Officio Planning Board member.

Being a lifelong resident of Thornton as well as a licensed surveyor, he continuously offered a wealth of knowledge and information regarding the history and past events of our Town. During his tenure Roy attended multiple outside training sessions relative to municipal government to acquire the technical knowledge to help perform his duties as a Selectman.

He has been instrumental in many important projects and processes through the years including but not limited to mapping updates, perambulation records, zoning compliance application processes and acquisition of grants.

Thank you Roy for all you have done for the Town of Thornton. 

Enjoy your retirement!
