Flags in Southborough and across the state are flying at half staff again. This time, it’s in honor of Massachusetts State Representative James Miceli (19th Middlesex District, of Wilmington, MA), who passed away April 21, 2018. Governor Baker’s office ordered lowering of flags today (April 23, 2018) through sunset on his day of interment, yet to be announced.

Updated (4/26/18 1:31 pm):  The date of interment will be  Friday, April 27, 2018. Flags are expected to be raised at sunset on that day.
