It is with pleasure that I endorse Lya Batlle-Rafferty for School Committee. Lya and I have served on the Board of Assessors together since 2017, and I have seen firsthand her dedication to the Town and commitment to elected office. Lya is a thoughtful decision maker who takes the time to evaluate issues with both data and compassion in order to best support our residents. She will bring this same discerning approach to the School Committee as we face the challenges of maintaining our outstanding schools within our financial means.

Dawn Ronan is definitely a voice of the people and even more importantly, a voice for our youth. I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Dawn for almost three years. I have witnessed her passion for programming that helps develop leadership skills and foster community service with our youth of Hopkinton. I have seen her fight for access and inclusion for all of the families here in Hopkinton. She not only sees a need and does her best to fill it, she actively looks around town and asks, what is the need? Dawn is beyond hard working and selfless.

Dear Editor and fellow Hopkinton residents:

When it comes to establishing partisan division in our town, I ask you to NOT let “It all start here”.

I’m an “Unenrolled” voter (aka – Independent) and I’ve supported both blue and red candidates over the last decade and beyond. If anyone cares, I did not support the current administration in the last Presidential election.

In full candor, I am no longer a resident of Hopkinton as my life and career have brought me back home to the Garden State . However, I do still co-own property In town and I care deeply about the place where I inarguably spent some of the best years of my life.

The town that I love so well, is again at a crossroads, as growth and its impact on services and facilities must be addressed, financial challenges will emerge as the result of Covid-19 , and the town must honor its past, recognize and embrace the current change in its makeup and plan prudently for the future.
