MARSHFIELD,Mass. Barack Obama was a state senator and Mitt Romney a governor when Marshfield's fire chief first started asking for a new fire station. Oh, how far they've all come.
Marshfield residents at a special town meeting Monday night voted to borrow $3.5 million to replace the fire station in the town's Ocean Bluff-Brant Rock neighborhood. Fire Chief Kevin Robinson has been advocating for the new facility since 2004.
