From Casino Free Milford:
Last night the Milford Board of Selectmen signed the host community agreement with Foxwoods and scheduled the town referendum date for Tuesday, November 19th.

We now have two months to spread our critical message to all of Milford’s voters and attain our goal of keeping Milford casino free. We have some exciting ideas for newspaper ads, radio testimonials, mailings and good old-fashioned door-to-door chats, but we need money to bring most of our ideas to reality.

Cestari Says Scordino Knows How to Get It Done

Dear Editor:

I have been watching the School Committee race closely and was compelled to put pen to paper on a few issues for taxpayers to consider before they vote.

There have been whispers suggesting Ellen is too ‘busy’ to serve our town. Nonsense! We all know when something needs to be done, ask a busy person! Successful ‘busy’ people know how to prioritize, delegate and execute as appropriate. They know how to GET IT DONE.

A Positive Change: Ellen Scordino

To the Editor, Friends, & Neighbors,

We are fortunate to live in the Town of Hopkinton. It is a community rich with history, excellent schools, growing recreational areas, and intelligent and dedicated volunteers who work hard to improve what this town has to offer. As a community we are made up of veterans, parents, students, longtime residents, and newcomers; all who want the best for our growing Town. At times, change is needed and I think this is a time that voters in our community need to advocate for a positive change on our School Committee.

My name is Amy Ritterbusch and I am running for School Committee. I have lived in Hopkinton for nine years, have three children in the Hopkinton schools and I am committed to keeping our schools strong. I am a dedicated volunteer with a proven track record of bringing fresh ideas to each volunteer role I’ve taken on in town. I have been actively participating in our town budget process for several years and I feel that now is the right time for me to step up and take on a larger role.

Ellen Scordino: Third Candidate Statement

In Hopkinton, the School Committee is responsible for the strategic management of our school system – that includes defining how much taxpayer money is required to run our schools, and how to best spend that money to result in a “best in class district.” I can help do this. I will bring an independent voice and fresh perspective to these discussions.

For Ritterbusch

Dear Editor,

It has been 6 years since either of us has had a child in the Hopkinton school system, and yet we are actively working to elect Ellen Scordino to the School Committee.

Ellen is a breath of fresh air – She is the mother of two young girls, a community and business volunteer with a long history of giving back, and a partner in the law firm, Fish & Richardson. In 2012 Ellen received the prestigious Boston Business Journal’s 40 Under 40 Award.
