Letter to the Editor:

I am writing in support of Jean Bertschmann for School Committee.

Jean is a dedicated, intelligent and hardworking professional who has proven her effectiveness in the betterment of Hopkinton and its schools over the years.

I had the opportunity to work with Jean ten years ago when she and I served as Presidents of the HPTA and Hopkinton Education Foundation respectively. Jean demonstrated her ability to simultaneously respect tradition, think innovatively, and unify the efforts of separate entities for the common good of the Hopkinton Public Schools.

Jean has proven herself as a school committee member that educates herself on all sides of an issue; respectfully listens to, and wholly considers, all points of view; and forms decisions based on what is the best for Hopkinton.

Jean offers Hopkinton a unique balance of experience, wisdom, and openness for change that will benefit the school system and the greater Hopkinton community as it readies itself for future growth.

Please join me in re-electing Jean Bertschmann for School Committee.

Sincerely,
Ruth Ann Cote
