I am writing to you to declare my support for Frank Sivo for the office of School Committee. Where it concerns the responsibilities of the office of School Committee, Massachusetts General Law stresses familiarity with school finances, the open meeting law, conflict of interest law, special education law, collective bargaining, school leadership and evaluations. Frank has the professional background and local government experience to represent our Community in this office.

I’ve been a neighbor of Frank’s for approximately 15 years, and have gotten to know him, and his family, quite well.

I find him to be a highly thoughtful and intelligent leader who is outstanding at setting and executing strategic plans for business issues as well as town issues.

He’s an excellent listener who asks the right questions, is someone who is looking to makes things better for all and rarely has a personal agenda. He is also a great human being who truly cares about others and has empathy for those in society who don’t have much or are hurting.

We confidently recommend Lori Nickerson for the position of School Committee member. Knowing Lori, we are positive that she possesses the right skills and background to be an effective leader on the School Committee. As a corporate attorney, a parent, and a volunteer, Lori has a track record of analyzing complicated issues, being a fiduciary of large investments and assets, as well prioritizing competing initiatives. In all she does, Lori exemplifies honesty, fairness, and thoughtfulness. Lori will use those qualities to create an atmosphere of openness in the School Committee.

I have known Kelly since my family and I moved to Hopkinton nearly three years ago. During that time she and I have had opportunity to discuss a wide range of local civic issues. Through these conversations, I have discovered Kelly to be well informed, analytical and pragmatic. She has always been willing to objectively discuss any issue and actively listen to all thoughts and opinions while taking the time to weigh out all possible outcomes before coming to a conclusion. These are essential skills and qualities that make Kelly an effective voice for our children and our tax dollars.

I’m writing on behalf of Lori Nickerson to express my support of her as a Hopkinton School Committee member. I am the parent of a current 1st grader and soon to be kindergartener. From the moment I moved to town over 6 years ago, I’ve been involved in getting to know families.

It has been 7 years since either of us has had a child in the Hopkinton school system, however, because we believe that the foundation of our community reflects the quality of our schools, we remain engaged in the school committee races each year.

This spring we are proud to endorse Kelly Knight for one of the two open seats on the school committee.
Kelly and her husband, Alain, are the parents of two children (ages 8 and 11). Kelly is a community volunteer, current ZBA member, and a full-time professional program manager at a local software company.

I have known Kelly for the last 5 years and am constantly impressed by her dedication to her children, her career and her community. Kelly is reasoned and pragmatic. She will never make a decision without being well-informed, educated and willing to hear all sides of the issue.

These attributes will enable sound decision making. She is also open and candid. This means the community will not have to guess at what she is thinking. She will tell us. Let's take advantage of her stepping up and elect her.

I am supporting Kelly Knight in her candidacy for Hopkinton School Committee. We have known Kelly, our neighbor, since the day she first moved into the neighborhood. As a fellow professional woman and mother, the key traits of Kelly that immediately jump to my mind as being absolutely critical for a member of the School Committee are empathy, commitment, curiosity, and ability to communicate.
