Selectman Office Hours this Friday 9-10AM
My regular monthly selectman office hours are at The Center on the first Friday of every month from 9:00 to 10:00 AM (this Friday).
Residents are welcome to stop by to talk in person about any town matters. Residents can also have coffee and see the Council on Aging in action (a vibrant organization with lots going on).
I can be reached via my cell phone at 508-359-9190 or my blog about Medfield matters, where any schedule changes will be posted.
I just received the materials for the meeting tonight, which are available here:
I especially recommend looking at:
- RFP for the senior housing on the Hinkley land
- the list of annual town meeting (ATM) warrant articles
- Coolidge Corner Theatre’s proposal to show Shutter Island at the Medfield State Hospital in May
This was from the Coolidge Corner Theatre’s outdoor showing at Rocky Woods:
The Coolidge Corner Theatre has also shown outdoor movies on the Kennedy Greenway in Boston.
State Representative Shawn Dooley was formerly the Town Clerk in the Town of Norfolk, but is not any longer, and has not been for some years. Carol Greene is the current Town Clerk in Norfolk and Anthony Turi is the current Assistant Town Clerk.
Thank you Eileen DeSorgher for knowing and sharing what I did not.
No contested seats
There are no contested races in the Town Election scheduled for March 30. And there is an open seat on the Trust Fund Commission.
Former Town Clerk Carol Mayer recently retired. Town Administrator, Kristine Trierweiler arranged for State Representative Shawn Dooley (who is also the Town of Norfolk, Town Clerk), to help the Town of Medfield in the two-week interim before Jim Mullen takes over as Medfield’s Interim Town Clerk.
The Town of Medfield’s town clerk position will only be officially filled when a new town clerk is elected next year, when Carol Mayer’s three year term ended.

Please note the numbered Post-Its on the sign above, which were created after one Ralph Parmigiane yelled at me one month for taking too long talking with someone when “people were waiting” to talk with me. I had not been aware that Ralph was waiting to talk with me, but the issue he raised was real, so I added “Ralph’s numbers” so I could be aware when people were waiting. In perfect Ralph fashion (loud, brusque, opinionated, but lovable) he made what I was doing better. I will miss him.
Ralph’s wake is tomorrow evening from 4-8 PM at Roberts Mitchell Caruso Funeral Home and the funeral is a graveside service w/ full military honors on Friday Feb 7th 10am at Vine Lake Cemetery.
