MY SELECT BOARD OFFICE HOURS THIS MONTH ARE 8-9 AM THIS FRIDAY, 1/8/21

MY SELECT BOARD OFFICE HOURS THIS FRIDAY

This month the first Friday was New Years Day, so the office hours were postponed one week to 1/8/21, however I was already scheduled that day at 9AM to attend the Massachusetts Select Board Association’s annual meeting, so I am holding the office hours from 8-9AM on Friday, January 8, 2021.

I can be reached via 508-359-9190 or this blog about Medfield matters https://medfield02052.wordpress.com, where any schedule changes will be posted. 

I hold regular monthly office hours related to my work as a Select Board member, and this month my office hours will be conducted this Friday, January 8, 2021 from 8-9 AM via telephone by residents calling 508-359-9190.

After COVID-19 I will return to The Center on the first Friday of every month from 9:00 to 10:00 AM.
