Seekonk Picks First Female Fire Chief


History was made Wednesday with the appointment of Sandra Lowery as the town’s new Fire Chief by the Board of Selectmen. Lowery, who had been serving as Interim Chief, is the first woman to lead the Seekonk Fire Department. “To our knowledge, (Lowery) is also Bristol County’s first female Fire Chief. It’s quite an achievement,” Selectmen Chairman Justin Sullivan said.

Town Administrator Shawn Cadime, who interviewed the candidates for the position, noted Lowery was “the right choice.” Cadime also recognized what he called Lowery’s “growth in confidence” during her time as Interim Chief.
