I'm running for Library Trustee of the Medfield Public Library!
Last year I had asked if the library had any open jobs, and I didn't realize you needed a degree in Library Sciences, or a rare opportunity to be a designer or IT person, in order to work for the library.
So, just a month ago, one of the library staff members asked if I would be interested in running for Trustee, and I agreed! It was also explained to me that a trustee is someone who sits on the Board of Trustees, meeting once a month to discuss funding, facilities, new initiatives and evaluations, and also advocates for the library!
After walking up and down my neighborhood streets on one of the coldest days of the year, and standing outside of Blue Moon Bagel Cafe to gather signatures, I turned-in my papers and will be on the ballot in the upcoming town elections!
And look at that - I'm in the news! An article in The Enterprise of Brockton speaks about the upcoming Medfield elections. The article also notes that I am, apparently, a man, stating that "Geena Matuson and another man have pulled papers for two seats on the Trustees of the [The Medfield Public Library]..." Haha.
And if you're in Medfield, don't forget to vote on town election day, March 28th!
