Boston Marathon: The Aftermath

Where do I begin? The Boston Marathon is one of Hopkinton’s biggest news events, and, as a reporter and local media person since 2004, I have been covering the marathon for several years. I still remember my first year at the start line with an official press pass as a reporter for the Hopkinton Independent and the thrill of being allowed to mix and mingle with the big media outlets. Being in Hopkinton at the start line is a unique experience for anyone, but holds particular meaning for those of us who live here, even if we are not runners.

Supporting Ritterbusch for School Committee

Dear Editor,

I am writing in support of Amy Ritterbusch for Hopkinton School Committee. I know Amy will continue to uphold the strong educational values that make this town a coveted place to live.

I have spent the last two years serving on the Hopkins school council with Amy. I knew of her dedication to the schools but during these last two years, I have now experienced first hand her passion and in-depth knowledge of the school system.

Dear Editor,

Last week the Hopkinton School Committee selected Cathy MacLeod to serve the citizens of Hopkinton as the next Superintendent of Schools. Their decision followed a very thorough process I was pleased to participate in, along with several other Hopkinton residents, as a member of the Superintendent Search Committee.

In Response to Dykema's Response

Dear Editor,

I am writing to respond Rep. Dykema’s letter explaining her vote against putting committee votes online. The day after her vote in the House, the Senate voted to put these votes online. Our representative is being misleading at best.
Let me further remind everyone that last year when questioned about putting these votes online, she said the technology was now there and she would “absolutely” vote for it.

Holliston Voter Says Dykema's Third Term Off to Bad Start

Dear Editor,

It seems that Rep. Dykema’s start of her third term is off to a very bad start. First, she takes an overseas junket and doesn’t state who paid for it. Hey, it was on water quality so it is ok. Has she not heard of skype?

Dykema files legislation to charge everyone for school transportation. She never looks for a savings, just more of our money.

Disappointed with Dykema

Dear Editor,

I’m writing to express deep disappointment in Rep. Dykema. Last October Marty Lamb criticized Dykema for voting against putting committee votes online. Even the moderator challenged her about voting against this common sense transparency reform. At that point in the debate, she said she would now support putting these votes online. That promise was very short lived.

In the third vote to happen this year, she voted against it again. This is a prime example of a politician saying anything to get elected and then doing the opposite on Beacon Hill.
