Northborough – The Northborough Board of Selectmen met on Oct. 19 and shared updates and town news including welcoming new hires and a voting update.
Rebecca Meekins started her new role as Assistant Town Administrator.
“I am super excited to start with Northborough,” she said. “Your community has a great reputation particularly among its surrounding communities. You guys have lots of great projects going on that I am really excited to dig in and provide my expertise and services to the residents of Northborough.”
Also, three new Northborough firefighters/paramedics were introduced by Fire Chief David Parenti and officially sworn in by Town Clerk Andrew Dowd: Anthony Riccardo, Cameron Tracia, and Matthew Tufo. All three will start the fire academy in February with anticipated graduation in May.
“I have worked very hard to get to this point in my career,” said Tracia. “Northborough will definitely be a place where I can learn and grow and succeed as a firefighter and paramedic and am honored to be a part of it.”
Riccardo echoed the same sentiments.
“I am excited to get into the fire academy and start to absorb all those things and put it all to good use,” he said.
Tufo, who is a Navy veteran, is also looking forward to joining the Northborough Fire Department.
“I am excited for the opportunity to grow within the Department and to become a better firefighter and paramedic.”
