Mayor Gary Christenson congratulated longtime Public Facilities employee Ron “Butch” Lessard on 25 years of service with the City of Malden!

He also served as a project manager for the Malden High School renovations. As Assistant Director of Public Facilities he managed the City’s $8 Million dollar energy efficiency project converting air handling systems, controls and lighting systems throughout the City. This has earned the city of Malden to be the best in class with respect to efficiencies among municipalities. Ron is also well-known for keeping the neatest and most organized mechanical rooms around. Mayor Christenson presented Ron a citation in recognition of his milestone and wished him luck in the next 25 years!
