Thoughtful and collaborative leadership: that is what I will provide if re-elected to the School Committee.

During my two years as President of the Hopkinton Parent Teacher Association and six years on the School Committee (two as Chairman) I established a record of strong leadership, commitment to our children, and spending discipline.

I would like to encourage the voters of Hopkinton to support Nancy Burdick for School Committee on May 16th.

My experience with Nancy has shown that she is one of the few town leaders that have consistently reached out for feedback and ideas on the major issues concerning the town. This type of outreach needs to be supported and encouraged if we are to solve the looming challenges facing the town.

I support Nancy Burdick for re-election to the School Committee.

I served the final four years of my twelve-year tenure on the School Committee with Nancy. She is smart, thoughtful, and determined to provide the best for our children to the extent that the community can afford.

Nancy is a very attentive listener and values communication and collaboration very highly. Her leadership style is to develop consensus before taking action.

Dear Editor:

Like many of those not native to Hopkinton, I grew up in a districted town (Shrewsbury). We moved here primarily because of the quality of the schools and the reputation of the town. Ironically, thousands of new parents had the same rationale over the last 10 years. This of course resulted in significantly more classrooms for each grade than historical averages, and overcrowded classrooms.

Top 10 Reasons to Vote Yes for the New School

1. We have a very good staff, teachers and administration that will always be there for our children. The building simply helps them do a better job and get better teachers. The Center School Principal says she has a hard time recruiting top teachers because of the physical building.

Dear Editor:

There has been much said from both sides of the vote as to what the ideal decision is for the future of Hopkinton’s schools. I worry we are dangerously close to losing sight of the big picture—the future leaders that will emerge from this lovely town.
