I am very impressed by the residents of Richfield I have been meeting as I go door to door. My extended family lives in Richfield including my 100-year-old grandmother who has lived in Richfield since 1955 and my husband spent his early years here. My community involvement includes being on the boards of youth, school and church organizations.
