Employee: Morgan Shirkey
When citizens see you around town, what are you most likely to be doing? Getting food or dessert or doing something with my kids.
Favorite part of your job? The people, and getting to know more about the Town.
Least favorite part of your job? So far, transferring phone calls (ha!)
Favorite food? Is ice cream a food? If not, I love Japanese and Italian.
Favorite movie? I can’t ever choose one so I’ll just say The Devil Wears Prada.
Favorite website? As much as I utilize Google, it almost feels like it’s my favorite.
Favorite sports team? I don’t follow any.
What do you like to do when you’re not working? Read or do fun stuff with my kids (games, movies, outings.)
If you could go anywhere in the world on vacation, where would it be? Scotland – it looks so beautiful and ancestry.com says I have some Scottish in me!
If you could meet anyone from history, who would it be? Jane Austen – anyone who can politely and humorously criticize people and her society must be interesting to chat with, right?
What is something nobody knows about you? I once read the brand new (then) 700+ page Harry Potter book in one day. Clearly I was younger and had more time on my hands. Now this seems like a real feat!
If we could attract any business we wanted to Bridgewater, what would it be? A small businessy/independent bookstore.
