Dykema Accused of Reversing Position

Dear Editor,

Last fall during the Hopkinton debate for State Representative, Carolyn Dykema changed her position on putting committee votes online. Despite voting against it twice, she pledged moving forward that she would vote in favor of letting the public know about these votes by putting them online.

Unfortunately, she did not keep that commitment. Only 3 roll calls into the new session, she broke that promise! That’s right, the third vote of the year she went back on her word.

From Hopkinton resident Jackie Potenzone:

I read an article in the news on the critical shortage of blood at this time and the need for donations. I want to tell you why I donated blood after reading the story, and why I'm now a blood donor.

Supporting Marty Lamb

Dear Editor,

Our state’s unemployment has jumped up for the 3rd straight month in a row. If we want to turnaround our economy, the Commonwealth must be more business friendly. Only one candidate for State Representative has a plan. That candidate is Marty Lamb.

Former Selectman Supports Dykema

A vote for Carolyn Dykema for State Representative in the 8th Middlesex District will help continue a fine tradition for all the residents in the District. Over the years my neighbors and I have been very ably represented at the State House by folks like Barbara Gardner, Paul Loscocco, and most recently Dykema—folks from different parties but dedicated to common principles— professionalism, ethics, commitment and stewardship.

We are offering our endorsement of Carolyn Dykema to continue as State Representative for Massachusetts’ 8th Middlesex District. We base this decision on a number of areas of success and achievement during her first two terms, including her demonstrated ability to work with other legislator to get things done, as well as her ongoing support for education and our veterans.

In support of Carolyn Dykema for re-election for state rep. of the 8th district.

To me Carolyn Dykema is the definition of “good people”.
She is a tireless advocate who cares about our community.

She has reached out to me when my family has been hurting,
she has reached out to my son to help with an Eagle scout project,
she has reached out to the seniors,
she has reached out to veterans,
she has reached out on the environment,
and has reached out to support our children’s education.

Letter to Editor

Dear Editor,

Government regulations are hurting our local businesses. I was disappointed to learn that Rep. Dykema voted to force home daycare centers into a state employee union. She’ll say they are not forced, but the state takes the money out of the voucher whether they join or not. These are small women owned home daycares that are being hurt.

These small businesses have opposed being in the SEIU for 8 years. Instead of the legislature accepting that decision, they passed legislation to force them to pay union dues.

Hopkinton resident Bruce Clark has this to say in response to the recent update from Baystone Development regarding work on Clinton Street, Front Street and Aprilla Farm Road.

This is Bruce Clark at 13 Alprilla with a few comments about both the information and the tone of this most recent message from "our neighbors" Baystone Development.

Supporting Jean Bertschmann for School Committee

I am supporting Jean Bertschmann for School Committee because of her proven commitment to excellence in the Hopkinton Schools.

I have worked with Jean in multiple capacities over the past 10 years including serving under her leadership on the Superintendent Steering Committee, co-chairing school fundraising events, and collaborating when our tenures of president of the HPTA and Education Foundation overlapped. I have been impressed with her knowledge of the schools, ability to build consensus, and efficiency in managing tasks.
