Editor’s Note: the following is a release from the office of Mayor Gary Christenson
Michael J. Richards, Managing Member/Owner of Commonwealth Mortgage recently stopped by Mayor Gary Christenson’s office to return a book that he borrowed from City Hall back in 1982 when he was a sixth grader at the old Beebe Junior High.
His assignment was to write a report on the history of Malden. He stopped by City Hall and asked a staff member if there was a book he could borrow and was handed the book “Malden from Primitive Past to Progressive Present” with the agreement that he would return it when he finished his report.
A 1988 graduate of Malden High School, Michael moved out of Malden in 1996 but his mother recently found the book and remembered the deal he had made with the gentleman at City Hall.
