contribute's picture

It is with the utmost confidence that we recommend Lori Nickerson for the position of School Committee member. Having known Lori for over 15 years, we believe that she possesses the traits and skills needed to serve our community well in this capacity. Lori is intelligent, straight-forward, and dedicated to making well-informed, thoughtful decisions that will have a positive impact on our school system--all while remaining fiscally responsible. Lori is sincere in her desire to serve the residents of this town, and to work collaboratively to ensure that Hopkinton continues to improve upon its high quality of education for all students from Pre-K through 12th grade.

As her longtime friends, we also want voters to know that Lori is a wonderful person, a loving friend, an amazing mother, and a woman our daughter and other young girls in Hopkinton would be fortunate to look up to as a role model. Lori’s desire to give back to those around her has been evident since we met her more than 15 years ago, and it is stronger today than ever before. She will be a listening ear to all who wish to voice their thoughts as they relate to school matters.

Lori’s strong communication skills, which she has honed not only in her personal life but also in her professional life as a corporate attorney, will serve her well as a collaborator on the School Committee team, and will ensure that all future School Committee decisions are made in a way that is transparent to all of Hopkinton. She will bring a fresh perspective and innovative ideas that will bring balance and objectivity to the School Committee.

It is with great pride and a sense of honor that we support our friend Lori Nickerson for a seat on the School Committee and ask you to do the same on May 19th.
