The Moderator has appointed Thomas F. Mulvoy, Jr. to the vacant slot on the Warrant Committee created by the resignation of Tim Nugent. I recently heard Tom described on the radio (either WGBH or WBUR) as the “unofficial historian” of the Boston Globe. This email this afternoon from the moderator:
Good afternoon all:
I am very pleased to appoint Thomas Mulvoy to the Warrant Committee. Tom (bio below) will succeed Tim Nugent and fill the remainder of Tim’s term. Tom will bring his good judgment, professional experience, and commitment to Medfield to the work of the committee. I want to thank Tim for his service on the Warrant Committee; and also express the Town’s appreciation for his many long-standing contributions to our community. Please see my letter to the Town Clerk (attached).
Very best regards,
Scott F. McDermott
