I spent Medfield Day helping the Medfield Foundation with its booth and also spent a shift with Medfield Cares About Prevention (MCAP) – in the photo above I am sharing time with MCAP board member and school nurse Kathy Thompson. Note the new “02052” hat I am wearing – you can get it at Jack Conway Realtors, and the $10 goes to MCAP.
My observations on the reactions I received from people, in general, as I handed them flyers, either from the Medfield Foundation or MCAP, with an elevator speech line of explanation (“MFi raises money for good things for your town, $2m so far” or “MCAP is working to keep your kids safe from drugs and alcohol”) was that most people were genuinely pleased to get that information, based on many heart felt sounding thanks received.
None of that has anything to do with the primary election tomorrow for the empty state senate seat, except that it was the reason I was at Medfield Day, which resulted in the conversations that caused me to learn that:
- Ted Philips told Medfield’s Fred Davis who told me that he, Ted Philips, is “left of center,” and that Paul Feeney “is left of him.”
- Democratic Town Committee members Eileen DeSorgher and Sue Bernstein related that they support Ted Philips because he is more experienced.
- Representative Denise Garlick reported that when she was a new state representative that Ted Philips, then a state house staffer, was hugely helpful to her.
I got to say hello to both Ted Philips and Mike Berry.
