Editorial: Kelly Knight Final Statement

contribute's picture

With less than one week left in this School Committee race I want to take a moment and clearly answer the most common question I have been asked in the last ten weeks: “Why are you running?”

The simple answer is I am running because I will add value, and I believe that if a person thinks they can make a difference that they should step up. I am stepping up.

I have no personal agenda other than a desire to ensure that our school district is run in the most efficient, cost effective, and transparent way possible.

I confidently recommend Frank Sivo for the Hopkinton School Committee. I have had the pleasure of serving with Frank on our Appropriations Committee and am impressed with his common sense approach, ability to build consensus, analytical and, especially, budgetary skills. Frank’s financial sense as well as professional experience positions him well to serve the community in this capacity.

I am writing to you to declare my support for Frank Sivo for the office of School Committee. Where it concerns the responsibilities of the office of School Committee, Massachusetts General Law stresses familiarity with school finances, the open meeting law, conflict of interest law, special education law, collective bargaining, school leadership and evaluations. Frank has the professional background and local government experience to represent our Community in this office.

I’ve been a neighbor of Frank’s for approximately 15 years, and have gotten to know him, and his family, quite well.

I find him to be a highly thoughtful and intelligent leader who is outstanding at setting and executing strategic plans for business issues as well as town issues.

He’s an excellent listener who asks the right questions, is someone who is looking to makes things better for all and rarely has a personal agenda. He is also a great human being who truly cares about others and has empathy for those in society who don’t have much or are hurting.

We confidently recommend Lori Nickerson for the position of School Committee member. Knowing Lori, we are positive that she possesses the right skills and background to be an effective leader on the School Committee. As a corporate attorney, a parent, and a volunteer, Lori has a track record of analyzing complicated issues, being a fiduciary of large investments and assets, as well prioritizing competing initiatives. In all she does, Lori exemplifies honesty, fairness, and thoughtfulness. Lori will use those qualities to create an atmosphere of openness in the School Committee.

I have known Kelly since my family and I moved to Hopkinton nearly three years ago. During that time she and I have had opportunity to discuss a wide range of local civic issues. Through these conversations, I have discovered Kelly to be well informed, analytical and pragmatic. She has always been willing to objectively discuss any issue and actively listen to all thoughts and opinions while taking the time to weigh out all possible outcomes before coming to a conclusion. These are essential skills and qualities that make Kelly an effective voice for our children and our tax dollars.

I’m writing on behalf of Lori Nickerson to express my support of her as a Hopkinton School Committee member. I am the parent of a current 1st grader and soon to be kindergartener. From the moment I moved to town over 6 years ago, I’ve been involved in getting to know families.

It has been 7 years since either of us has had a child in the Hopkinton school system, however, because we believe that the foundation of our community reflects the quality of our schools, we remain engaged in the school committee races each year.

This spring we are proud to endorse Kelly Knight for one of the two open seats on the school committee.
Kelly and her husband, Alain, are the parents of two children (ages 8 and 11). Kelly is a community volunteer, current ZBA member, and a full-time professional program manager at a local software company.
