Does anyone know what happens when a member of the armed forces that is on active duty away from Massachusetts gets a card from a town to sign the certification list? Does the town send the list to the person or do they select an individual to sign for them. How does the town interview the person (over the phone?) and if the veteran is #1 on the list does the town have to hire them if they want to accept the appointment and wait until the person finishes their obligation and returns home to Mass? Can the town just say to Civil Service "This guy is activated and won't be back for a year so we had to bypass him"??? Thanks!
