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!".

A vote for Lori Nickerson for Hopkinton School Committee is a vote for excellence.

Before I decide to support a candidate for local office, I do my homework. In this case, I watched Candidate’s Night, visited Lori’s website, read her campaign materials and arranged to speak directly with Lori on several occasions. These encounters have convinced me to vote for Lori for Hopkinton School Committee on Monday, May 19.

For many years, Hopkinton’s leadership has worked towards a “One Town” approach with respect to growth, capital projects, and budget. As our town continues to grow at an unprecedented speed, this goal becomes more and more critical. School Committee candidate, Frank Sivo, understands this goal first hand. As a member of the Appropriations Committee, he has worked a great deal with the School Committee and has a clear sense of the “One Town” concept. In my view, Frank is the candidate who will bridge any gaps between “Town” and “School” uniting us together as one.

I have lived in Hopkinton for 20 years and met Kelly in 2009 when she and her family moved in across the street. I was delighted to find that my new neighbor was a friendly, intelligent, outgoing person with a wonderful sense of humor and a commitment to civic engagement. As I have gotten to know Kelly better over the past five years, I have come to admire and respect her many outstanding qualities, and heartily endorse her for election to School Committee.

As some know, I’ve spent over 30 years providing education and training in technical fields, to both adults, world wide; and to children, locally. As was written to me some years ago, “It is rare to find a technical person who has excellent [communication] skills.” Frank Sivo is such a person, bringing an understanding of the technical skills needed by our students, and the communication skills required to persuade both the Community and our school administrators of the critical need to include STEM skills in Hopkinton’s education program.

Lori Nickerson is my choice for School Committee on May 19. To be an effective School
Committee member you need to have a passionate commitment to serve the town of
Hopkinton, a curiosity to learn all sides of an issue, and critical thinking skills that help you
make smart decisions. Lori displays all of these qualities on a regular basis.

I am pleased to endorse Lori Nickerson for the Hopkinton School Committee.

I have spent time with Lori over the course of her campaign and have come to believe that she has a powerful combination of skills and personal traits that will be a great benefit to our community in this role. She is well educated, highly accomplished professionally and thoughtful. She will also bring common sense and an open personality, which are equally critical for success.
