HOPKINTON, MA - Brian Herr, Republican candidate for United States Senate, issued the following statement on the Sgt. Bergdahl prisoner exchange:

"The prisoner exchange involving Sgt. Bergdahl has once again highlighted the administration's propensity to rush to action short of a full comprehension of the issues.

The President set a dangerous precedent. Trading Taliban leaders for Sgt. Bergdahl could increase the danger for Americans and could lead to more U.S. Soldiers being held hostage.

Now that the election is over I would like to take a minute to thank the people who supported me over the last 12 weeks. My husband, my children and my “Committee to Elect” were invaluable, but you, the voters, put me here. I am so grateful you believed in my platform and checked my name on Monday’s ballot! Now it’s time to get to work.

It is important to fill every seat on the School Committee with people who bring value to the team with a strong desire to serve our schools and community. There are three candidates running for the two open seats on our School Committee and we are thrilled that Kelly Knight is one of them. Kelly is extremely intelligent, with a keen sense of financial responsibility and a strong will to serve. She’s honest, objective, and keeps an open mind to all sides of a discussion.

In Hopkinton, we are one of the few towns that have partisan town elections. That means that on the ballot you will see the name of the party that a candidate belongs to and whether that candidate was nominated by their party’s caucus. Having partisan elections usually means that we have more contested races than surrounding towns with non-partisan elections. The two parties work to recruit and elect candidates for local offices. Historically Hopkinton has a larger turn out for local elections than surrounding towns.

Letter to the Voters of Hopkinton:

The School Committee is one of the most important committees in town government. They spend the largest portion of our budget and the set policy for the education for our precious children. The performance of our school system greatly influences our property values. It is critical that we pick experienced and knowledgeable persons to set priorities and policy for our schools.

As a resident of Hopkinton for over 19 years, with 4 children, I have witnessed tremendous change and growth to the Hopkinton School System. During my families' tenure here we experienced the growth of Hopkinton from a small, sleepy little rural community, to a bustling suburban town. My children have benefited tremendously; the addition of Hopkins school, the New High School, and the expansion of new programs and classes have helped insure that our children's future and education ,literally " all starts here!".
