Finance Committee Chairman James Roche, who for more than a decade has played an integral part in shaping the town’s annual budget, has decided not to seek reappointment.
Roche, however, isn’t going far, taking on a new role as treasurer for the Franklin Food Pantry.
“I think I can help them put some systems in place and take (the pantry) further down the path,” he said. “I’m still serving the town, but just in a different capacity. I think it’s important that people give back to the community. I’m just changing the venue.”
Note: As Chairman of the Board, the Franklin Food Pantry is extremely grateful for Jim’s help.
