Rajon Hudson, Assistant Town AdministratorIntro Picture

Hello everyone, name is Rajon Hudson. I’m originally from Birmingham, Alabama, and moved to New England in 2017 upon graduating from Auburn University. Prior to joining Boxborough, I served as the Clerk to the Town Council/Confidential Administrative Assistant for the Town Manager’s Office in North Attleborough. I also served as the Interim Assistant to the Town Manager for the Town of North Attleborough and Management Analyst for the Town of Lexington. I am excited about the opportunity to work with the staff and citizens to help create a brighter future in Boxborough!

Some random facts about myself:

J. Greeno Photo 1Jonathan Greeno, Town Assessor

Hello Everyone, my name is Jonathan Greeno and I am the new Principal Assessor for the town of Boxborough.  I have been an Assessor since 2012 for the town of Groton. I am also a Certified Residential Appraiser in MA and NH and have been since 2001. I enjoy working in a public setting.  I like being an Assessor because it's not the same drill everyday.  I maybe in the office, out in the field measuring and inspecting homes or working with other town employees all in the same day. 

Personally, my three favorites places to be are the Beach, the Softball Field and the Ski Slopes. I also ride a motorcycle and you will see it parked in the town hall parking lot come spring. I have either coached Baseball or Softball since 1988 and enjoy helping smart and athletic young ladies fulfill their dreams of playing softball in College.

I grew up in the neighboring town of Maynard and still have many friends in the area.  I listen to all kinds of music and enjoy collecting records from the 60's through the late 80's, so that tells you a bit about my age. I play records almost daily when in my home office. 

I am looking forward to working with and for the Residents of Boxborough and all of the town of Boxborough employees.  

Thanks to all and hope to see everyone around town.

KimberlK. Dee Photoey “Kim” Dee, Council on Aging Coordinator

My name is Kimberley Dee and I am the new Boxborough Council on Aging Coordinator.  (Most people call me Kim.)

I want to thank all the residents and town associates for my warm welcome.  I know my predecessor, Lauren Abraham, was a beloved member of the Boxborough Council on Aging and has been missed greatly.

I want to assure you that I will do my best to serve the seniors of Boxborough with dedication, respect and compassion, as I am sure Lauren did as well.

Professionally, I come from a background in senior services which began helping the elders in my own family and continued with my working as the administrative assistant at the Groton Council on Aging and an activities Assistant at Groton's Cooperative Elder Services.

Most recently, I served as an activity director at an assisted living community in Ayer, MA.  Working with seniors has become my passion and I feel so fortunate to begin the next chapter in my career as the Council on Aging Coordinator for the town of Boxborough.

Personally, I grew up in Townsend, MA and lived in Pepperell for over 30 years.  I am now a resident of Leominster, MA.  I have two children, Michael is a high school history teacher and Tina is a labor & delivery nurse.

I really enjoy listening to music, especially live country, classic rock, contemporary Christian and classical musical performances.  I enjoy going for walks, reading novels, playing word and board games, and traveling in the US and abroad.

I enjoy watching sports, primarily Red Sox and Patriots games and I am known for wearing jewelry or scarves, etc. to dress with the theme of every seasonal holiday.

I look forward to meeting you at one of our drive by or zoom events during the pandemic, but I hope we will all be able to get to know each other in person before too long!

Please feel free to contact me at 978-264-1717 if you have any concerns or suggestions or by email at

My office hours are Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday 8am-2pm and Thursday 8am-3pm.

Linda C. Photo 1Linda Collins, Administrative Assistant to DPW Director and Fire Chief

Hi everyone, I’m Linda Collins joining the Boxborough team as the new Admin for the DPW and Fire Dept.  I am looking forward to getting back into an office environment, working with a team of professionals and having weekends off!  Prior to coming here, I was a General Manager at a local Garden Center & Gift store where I wore many hats from sales, design, accounting, HR & marketing.  I have landscaped hundreds of residential yards and businesses locally-Newton.  Ed & I are already thinking visually about some plantings for the DPW landscape for this coming spring.  My business background includes banking, accounting and 25+ years of customer service.  While raising my three kids I working in many local, high end restaurants for over 20+ years again wearing many hats as a General Manager, waitress and bartender.  I have waited on several famous actors/actresses and sports figures while working in Concord, Lexington, Legal Seafoods & Cambridge.  My recent Channel 7 news appearance on my last day of employment at my last job also made me famous for a day!  

I live locally in Ayer after residing in Littleton for 20 years and have lived in this area for the past 40+ years graduating from ABRHS.  My three adult children are all independent (mostly) and now I can enjoy some alone time gardening, home décor projects, dreaded housework and just jumping in my car without waiting on 3 other passengers to join!

Random facts:

I am the middle of 7.  I have five brothers (yikes!) and one sister.  We are all spread across the country.

Working in my yard is my mental therapy.  Not always cheap but it is rewarding to see happy bright plants pop up throughout the year.

Things I wish to do:  Visit wine country.  Revisit Octoberfest in Germany someday with my three grown children.  What an experience it was when I went in 1986!

I am looking forward to meeting you all in person, working with you to support Boxborough & to not having to wear masks sometime soon!

K. Pesler PhotoKim Pelser, Department Assistant to the Building Inspector and Board of Health

Hello Board Members and Residents,

Please allow me to introduce myself. My name is Kimberly Pelser, and the little guy with me in the picture is my Grandson, Greyson.  I am the new Department Assistant in the Building Department.  

I would like to tell you a bit about myself, to give you a better idea of who I am, and the experience I bring with me to my new position in the town of Boxborough. 

Much of my experience is within the telecommunications field in the landline side of the house. I worked for Verizon for nearly 30 years before I “retired”; although I call it repurposing.

I began my career as a call completion operator or what is known to the public as a “0” operator. Fast forward almost 30 years and I ended my career in an engineering position working with the technicians that bring you your landline service. Within those years I held multiple positions from scheduling and the printing of the course material that trained the technicians, billing and supplies, a short assignment under the management title managing a crew of 11 of my peers. The last portion of my career was spent as a Facility Assigner. 

In this role I had to know the technology to help the outside technician connect your telephone service.  As we always said, “We are the keepers of the cables and pairs.”  This position required knowledge of how the equipment worked, how the service orders were written, to how the service was wired in the central office so when you picked up your phone you had dial tone. When you see a technician on a pole or in the green boxes on the side of the road, chances are exceptionally good they are speaking with someone in the Facility Assigner role. My department handled E911, lottery circuits, presidential lines when the President’s would come to Massachusetts for vacation, to the phone lines for the World Series, etc.  If you like jigsaw puzzles that would be the job for you!  

On a more personal note, I am a married mother of four, 3 girls and one boy, and Nana to the adorable little guy, in the picture, who has me wrapped around all his fingers.  My interests are baking, reading, going to the beach, traveling, and when weather permits being out on the motorcycle.  I do not ride my own as I prefer to watch the world go by on the back, and of course spending time with my Grandson and family.

Thank you for the opportunity to be a part of your town government and the town hall family. I look forward to meeting all of you in person once the Covid-19 pandemic is behind us.  Thank you.
