EGREMONT – As Select Board Chairman Bruce Turner’s last annual town meeting on the board, his colleague Mary Brazie presented him with a plaque to honor his 25 years of service to the town.
“I first met Bruce when I was hired by the town in 1983, and he’d been a selectman for a year or two before that, as well as a member of the fire department and the school committee” she recalled. “What struck me about Bruce is his dedication to the town of Egremont.”
Brazie highlighted the select board’s many accomplishments with Turner’s help and under his leadership, including the reconstruction of Blunt Road, a new highway garage, dog park, mutual emergency services, and the veteran’s memorial in South Egremont.
“Bruce has always met challenges head on and fought for the town’s best interest,” Brazie continued. “He leaves this town better than it was, and his legacy will continue to make town a better place. Bruce’s shoes are very big to fill, and we would welcome you back.”
Turner declined the offer, but said it had been a pleasure to serve his community.
