[ARCHIVED] Town Moderator to Hold Series of Open Forums

Hello Medfield:

I hope you’ve had a great summer around town or wherever your travels may have taken you. I enjoy the rhythm of Medfield, and how the beat slows down a little during the heart of the summer. And now, as we get deeper into August, the familiar tempo of Medfield begins its return.   

This is a very important next couple of months for our community.  For me, it is filled with opportunity, but also a big challenge.  I need to create a conversation with all of you. A dialogue that will prepare and enable me, as Moderator, to make seven (7) highly significant appointments.

I have appointments to make to our Warrant Committee.  I love this committee. They are the key advisory committee to our Town Meeting.  They have stepped-up in a big way for our community as we have addressed a wave of important issues for the town.  Bringing talented, committed, and collaborative neighbors to this committee is an annual privilege of the Moderator.   

Then, per our vote on a bylaw amendment at our Annual Town Meeting, I have four appointments to the School Building Committee. I am honored to have the opportunity to appoint three citizens at-large and one member of the Warrant Committee to the SBC. It is time for Medfield to move forward renewing our commitment to elementary education. Medfield – we are about being a great community with great schools.

So, how will I be connecting with you?  First, I will be hosting Open Forums for listening and talking. The first three forums are scheduled for:

Wednesday August 24, 7:00pm     Medfield Town House live and on Zoom

Wednesday August 31 7:00pm     Medfield Public Safety Building live and on Zoom

Wednesday September 14, 7:00pm     Medfield Town House live and on Zoom

Zoom details are below. I will also be writing a series of open letters for positing on the website, printing here as a letter to the editor, and circulation to the community by all available means and methods.  Finally, I always encourage you to reach out to me at:

I’m excited to engage and hear your thoughts. More to come – stay tuned!

All the best,

Scott McDermott
