Here's a brief introduction of Jeremie Smith, Foxborough Patch's new Local Editor.
Good morning Foxborough, Or is it Foxboro? Our poll question shows 23 of 49 voters (46 percent) prefer Foxboro over Foxborough but as town historian Jack Authelet says, "from the time our town was incorporated in 1778 until the present, we are a municipality with a dual identity, Foxborough and Foxboro, and we wear both names proudly.

My name is Jeremie Smith and for the past 18 months, I have served as the Local Editor of Medfield Patch . I enjoyed …
