SHIRLEY -- Chief Administrative Officer David Berry said Friday morning he is not resigning, despite a message from the Board of Selectmen that he will be removed if he doesn't quit by Friday afternoon.

"If they're going to do anything further it's up to them," Berry said at town offices.

He said he asked selectmen to make a list of complaints that he can address, and the earliest they could start the process is Monday night's selectman meeting.

On Monday night, selectmen voted 2-1 to ask Berry to resign by Friday or they would begin the process to fire them. Selectmen Kendra Dumont and David Swain voted in favor of the motion, and Selectman Chairman Andy Deveau voted against.
