    It happened. Again. Keegan to stay.

    by: Brian

    Some of you may know that Bill Keegan's son is quite the baseball player, but on Bryant St these days the big man himself seems to be channeling Yogi Berra.  That is, it's like déjà vu all over again.  

    You'll remember a couple years ago Bill was offered the job of Town Administrator in Mansfield, but he wasn't able to come to terms on a contract with the Selectmen, and ended up staying here for a few more years.  It was recently reported that he was hired in Foxboro, and naturally all of us were very happy for him.  At the very least we were hoping to see him on TV sitting in Mr. Kraft's box on Sundays in the fall.

    It seems that once again Bill is leaving a community standing at the altar.  He failed to come to terms once again with the Foxoboro Selectmen, and so he'll be sticking it out here for the foreseeable future.  I'm sure Nancy Baker is disappointed she won't be moving down the hall, and the gaggle of the Selectmen candidates will need to come up with a new stump speech now that they don't have this as an issue anymore.  Bill issued a statement a little while ago, which I've reprinted after the jump.

    Brian :: It happened. Again. Keegan to stay.

    It has been a great pleasure working here in Dedham for the last decade, and I have many fond memories of my time here.  When the opportunity arose to work in Foxboro I saw it as a chance to grow in my career, as well as a chance for the Town of Dedham to get some new blood and new ideas.  Unfortunately, I was unable to come to terms with the Foxboro Selectmen, and I wish them well as they move forward as a community.

    I now look forward to retiring many years from now as the Town Manager in Dedham, and to the many challenges we will face together in the years to come.  I want to thank the Board of Selectmen for their steadfast support, all the staff at Town Hall for their friendship and professionalism, and most of all the good people of Dedham.  You have all been wonderful, and I wish each and every one of you a very Happy April Fool's Day.
