Town clerk to retire next month

Jun 28, 2020

A familiar face will no longer be at Town Hall come July 27. 

After nearly three decades of serving Dartmouth, Town Clerk Lynn Medeiros announced Friday that she will retire near the end of next month.

It has been an honor to serve the Town of Dartmouth,” she said. “I’m thankful for all those who supported me during all these years, especially my staff.”

During her tenure as clerk, Medeiros secured various programs for the town office to keep things up-to-date, digitized the town bylaws, and oversaw an election during a global pandemic.

For Medeiros, there was never a dull moment while working for the town. 

“You’re always working on four or five things at once that you can never be bored,” she said. “It’s a very busy position.”

Another thing Medeiros said she will miss is working with the public and seeing residents come in and out of her office.

“The town clerk’s office is kind of the hub of the town,” she said. “You get to know a lot of the people that come in.”

The term of office for Medeiros doesn't expire until April 2021, so an interim appointee will need to be named until that time.

As for her retirement, Medeiros said she has a new opportunity lined up, but is currently focused on finishing up her duties as town clerk.

“Right now my goal is getting retired,” she said. “Then I’ll let people know where I’m at.”
