Today Mayor O'Connell, on behalf of the City of Taunton, expressed deep sorrow in the sudden passing of City Councilor Dan Dermody.
"Dan loved his family and his community. His passing is a tremendous loss to our city. I want to express my deepest sympathy to his family and loved ones," said O'Connell.
Dan, a lifelong Tauntonian, was deeply committed to public service. He served for 16 years on the Taunton Planning Board and was recently elected to serve on the Taunton City Council. Dan's thoughtfulness and compassion will be missed by his colleagues on City Council.
