Dourney Not Seeking Re-election in May

By contributor,

RJ Dourney announced today he would not be running for re-election to the Hopkinton Board of Selectmen here in Hopkinton. His current term will end May 16th, 2011.

As CEO of Hearthstone Associates, the New England franchisee for Cosi, Dourney sighted the demands of his growing business and his commitment to family and the Catholic Church for his decision. Dourney said that, “our Cosi restaurant business continues to grow and I remain extremely focused on the success of Hearthstone Associates. Add to this the blessing of an active family, including three teen age daughters and my commitment to the Catholic Church and my available time has become limited.”

In addition to serving as the Chairman of the Board of Selectmen Dourney serves on the Finance Committee for the Inner City Scholarship Foundation, the Board of Directors of Frisch’s Restaurants and is an active member of St. John the Evangelist Catholic Church in Hopkinton.

“I have enjoyed serving Hopkinton since we moved to town in 2000 and look forward to staying close to the process”, Dourney added.

Dourney had previously served Hopkinton on the Planning Board, the Zoning Advisory Committee as well as in a number of liaison capacities.
