Senator James Timilty (D-Walpole) continues to stand by the Medfield community he represents during the town’s quest for complete remediation of the Medfield State Hospital property and complete removal of hazardous waste on the site.

Tuesday's Board of Selectmen meeting was postponed because Senator James Timilty was not able to attend due to the death of his sister.
The Medfield Board of Selectmen postponed Tuesday's meeting with Senator James Timilty and State Representative Dan Winslow due to the death of Senator Timility's sister, Kelly Timilty, earlier Tuesday after a brief illness. Assistant Town Administrator Kristine Trierweiler said the selectmen decided to postpone Tuesday's meeting out of respect for Sen. Timilty. Kelly Timilty was a member of the Governor's Council where she represented the Second District which includes Medfield. The selectmen were to discuss a possible casino in Foxborough, a proposed railroad expansion that would run from Worcester through Medfield to Foxborough, and the status of the Medfield State Hospital property. The meeting will be rescheduled at a later date.
