Tonight’s Board of Selectmen meeting (7 pm, Town Hall) is the last for the current board. The new board, led by Sandra Pierog, will take office next week.
Tonight’s meeting is thus the last for Gwen Marrion, who is retiring after four years of service. Fortunately for Bolton, Gwen doesn’t plan to disappear from public life. She remains president of the Bolton Land Trust and plans to refocus her efforts there.
Gwen and her husband, Tom, have lived in Bolton for thirty years, and Gwen has been active in town almost since their arrival. Her work on behalf of the Inland Wetlands Commission, the Heritage Farm, the Open Space Acquisition and Preservation Committee, the 2008 charter revision commission, the Bolton Land Trust, and, most recently, the Board of Selectmen has been exemplary, and Bolton is much the better for it.
Thank you, Gwen, for your service to the town. We’re sorry to see you retire from BOS but excited to see what you do next!
