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.

Selectman Office Hours this Friday
I hold regular monthly office hours at The Center on the first Friday of every month from 9:00 to 10:00 AM and will be there 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 508-359-9190 or this blog.
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.
