An appreciation for a job well done
I have been thinking this morning about the Town of Medfield employees who provide we residents with the services that allow our lives to continue with as much semblance of normalcy as possible at all times, but most especially in these truly unsettling circumstances we are currently experiencing. Our water goes on, public safety continues to serve us, the Transfer Station even added Sunday openings, and all the town government systems continue to function, if behind a digital curtain, all so that we residents can continue our lives.
The town employees are providing essential services, so while they likely share the same unease that envelopes us all, they continue to work their jobs. I wanted to publicly share with the Town of Medfield employees my sincere appreciation for their efforts and to thank them.
I am extremely appreciative of what all the town employees are doing now, working under difficult circumstances – I want to let them all know just how much this one resident, one who tries hard to observe closely the functioning of the town government so as to understand it as well as possible, truly appreciates what our team of town employees are accomplishing for we residents.

This tweet below from the Medfield Police Department about the appointment of Ryan Maxfield to be a Sergeant last night at the Select Board meeting. The family photo is missing his really cute older daughter, who I gave me a high five.
Eight candidates were also named to a list to be vetted for employment by the Medfield Police Department, at least two of whom grew up in town and one of whom is a firefighter.
MPD at a lemonade stand on Green Street this week –
Email sent to the Town Administrator yesterday with the above photo –
This afternoon I was happily buying a refreshing glass of lemonade at Green St. when I noticed three Medfield Police patrol cars pulling up. Jokingly I asked the kids if they had a permit for their stand. Their faces were priceless!
Great community work by three of your finest officers!
Thank you MPD!
Chief Michelle Guerette was hired and officially started work the day of the annual town meeting (ATM), however, last night at the Board of Selectmen meeting there was a ceremonial swearing in by Town Clerk, Carol Mayer, and the Chief also received a heart medal from her youngest child, Murphy, who also marched with the Chief in the town’s Memorial Day parade the day before.
From Chief Guerette:
The Police Department will be conducting a multi-agency training event at the State Hospital grounds on Wednesday, May 22 from 8-3. Do not be alarmed at the increased police activity. If you would like to come to say hello, please remain outside of the designated training area for your safety
NB – police chief appointment discussions start at 6PM.
