State Legislators Support Purchase of State Hospital Property
Westborough’s Delegation supports Town’s Legislation to Re-Use Westborough State Hospital Property
BOSTON— Representatives Carolyn Dykema, Danielle Gregoire and Matthew Beaton and Senator James Eldridge joined together with the town of Westborough to support legislation filed on behalf of the town to enter into an agreement to purchase a parcel of the Westborough State Hospital property.
“The re-use of the grounds has been years in the making and, while there is still more work to be done, the hearing today moves us one step closer towards achieving the community’s vision,” said Representative Dykema. “I am particularly pleased that we are dedicating a portion of the funds to mental health programs recognizing the legacy of the facility.”
“After a long and thorough process that involved local and state officials as well as input from the town, I am very pleased to be able to join my colleagues in the House and Senate to advance Westborough’s interests forward with this bill,” said Representative Beaton. “Working with the rest of the Westborough legislative delegation, I am confident that we will pass this bill into law before the end of the current legislative session so the town of Westborough can begin to reap the benefits of this landmark deal between them and the Commonwealth.”
“I know the Town of Westborough has been looking to acquire this land for some time,” said Representative Gregoire. “While dealing with such a complex issue, I am happy that our state and local delegation has been able to work with the Division of Capital Asset Management to get the town to its end goal as quickly as possible.”
"I am pleased that the Joint Committee on State Administration and Regulatory Oversight held a hearing so quickly on H3979, An Act authorizing the commissioner of capital asset management and maintenance to convey certain parcels of land in the town of Westborough,” said Senator Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton). “The Westborough legislative delegation is committed to passing this important legislation for the town this session."
"Today's hearing was an important step in moving forward the acquisition of the Westborough State Hospital property by the Town,” said Westborough Selectman Ian Johnson. “It continues to be gratifying to the Town to witness the tremendous collaboration exhibited again today between the Town, our legislative delegation, and the Department of Capital and Asset Management. We feel confident that the results of today's hearing will propel the process towards a successful completion.
The bill (H.3979) was favorably reported from the Joint Committee on State Administration and Regulatory Oversight following a hearing held last week. This legislation builds on the Westborough State Hospital Reuse Commission established by the legislature in 2010. The town of Westborough authorized the delegation to file this bill on their behalf during their fall 2013 Town Meeting.

Bye Bye Birdie
Young Performers Edition
To quote from a description of a 2005 production at Arlington Children's Theatre, director Colleen Rua said,
... that although Bye Bye Birdie is a comedy, "the characters struggle with the complexity of parent-child relationships, war, love, and rapidly changing times. On the surface, it's all sweetness and light, but there's much more to it underneath."

First, we want to thank all of you who have attended our staff and community forums to meet the superintendent finalists and those of you who have gathered information and shared your feedback with us. We believe that the strength of our three finalists is a reflection of the strength and reputation of our school district, which is something we should all take pride in.
The public interview schedule will be as follows:
5:30-6:30 Michael Welch, Framingham High School Principal
6:45-7:45 Amber Bock, Weston Assistant Superintendent
8:00-9:00 Jean Fitzgerald, Watertown Superintendent
The School Committee will interview each finalist for approximately 45 minutes and will then read questions submitted by the community for approximately 15 minutes. Questions can be submitted in advance to Superintendent O’Connor at email@example.com or can be submitted on the evening of the interviews by filling out a form which will be available at the interview.
After the conclusion of the interviews, the School Committee will discuss the three finalists and vote to appoint the new superintendent. The new superintendent will begin in July.
