This weekend, downtown residents received certified letters from town manager Norman Khumalo asking us to “consider donating” easements on our property for the Main Street Corridor Project. The letter explained that we should donate the property rights, instead of taking the compensation we are entitled to, because it is cheaper for the town. It seems like there is no option of saying no and refusing to grant the easement. The letter I received this weekend states that over 200 easements are needed for the project.

Because of that, I felt it was my duty to get involved and give back.

My name is Irfan Nasrullah, and I am proud to announce my candidacy for the Board of Selectmen.

Some might say I’m an old timer here in Hopkinton; my family first moved here in 1981. There was a lot then for a high school freshman to find attractive about Hopkinton, a small centrally located town with wonderful natural beauty, trails, and plenty of space to explore.
