Retirement Board

There are 106 contributory retirement systems within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. The City of Woburn Retirement System is one of them. These systems have accepted the Provisions of Sections 1-28 of Chapter 32 of the Massachusetts General Laws (contributory sections). As a result of this acceptance, all systems, although operating independently, are bound together under one uniform retirement law. Each of these systems is governed by its own retirement board.


It is hereby determined that Denis P. Devine was the only candidate nominated for the First Elected Member to the Woburn Retirement Board.  Therefore, at a meeting of the Woburn Retirement Board held on Wednesday, November 30, 2022, the Board voted to declare Mr. Devine elected as the First Elected Member to the Woburn Retirement Board and that no election shall be held.  His term commences on January 1, 2023 and will expire on December 31, 2025.  He will serve in all respects as though he had been elected by election.

The other individuals comprising the five-member Retirement Board are:  Charles E. Doherty, City Auditor (Ex-Officio Member), Marilou E. Lundin (Second Elected Member), Michael J. Gorman, (Appointed Fifth Member) and Gerald W. Surette (Appointed Member).
