Adams: Randolph Is the Best

Opinion / Sep. 7, 2017 9:06am EDT

On the occasion of my retirement as Randolph Town Manager, this letter is being written to the residents of Randolph and to the many persons in Braintree and Brookfield with whom I have been privileged to coordinate.

In my 50 years of travel and public service, I can confidently say that no other community can compare with the vigorous volunteer life and commitment made by Randolph and area residents to support public institutions, the arts, education, recreation, economic growth, and wholesome living for citizens of all ages and interests.

Of special note are the dozens who endeavor in support of the Chandler Center, Kimball Library, and the behind-the-scenes efforts at managing homelessness, hunger, and opiate abuse.

Thanks especially to the employees and staff and to the elected and appointed representatives of many civic departments and public bodies. Your dedication to service and quality, your determination, and your candor have underwritten all of our programs and services.

The rewards of meeting and working with all of the amazing persons in our communities during the last five years and an earlier period of another four have left me with memories and friends that will sustain me for ages to come and have provided me great satisfaction both professionally and personally.

I now have the honor of introducing the new manager, Adolfo Bailon, to our projects, programs, and community. I am sure townspeople will share with him the same warm welcome which they offered me. Thank you all for allowing me to know you, to be of some service, and to anticipate future opportunities to work for Randolph, this time as a volunteer.
