Editorial: Supporting Sivo and Knight

contribute's picture

I am writing in support of Frank Sivo and Kelly Knight as candidates for Hopkinton School Committee.

They are both successful professionals whom I've known for a couple of years. They are deeply involved in working to to make our community a better place to live and raise a family. They might come at situations from different perspectives but both have the experience and capacity to learn and adjust to find the best innovative solutions.

I am writing as a private citizen, but some of your readers may know that I am one of the School Committee members representing Hopkinton on the board of Keefe Tech Regional High School. I co-chair the Keefe Tech Building Committee, we are in the process of constructing a new $6M roof which will be reimbursed by the MSBA by over 70% of the cost. Keefe Tech achieved this by doing the research and applying for the right kind of state funding (which is supported by sales tax that we all pay statewide). Hopkinton needs School Committee members who examine all the angles of a situation, and have the professional aptitude to lead and challenge the School Administration to find better ways of meeting our goals. I see Frank Sivo and Kelly Knight as being the type of professionals who can understand and push for the right things to be done on the School Committee for the benefit of ALL of the citizens of Hopkinton. Electing both would make a clean break with past politics of exclusion and provide a true independent voice for all of the town.

I believe that Frank and Kelly would both have a positive and professional working relationship with Dr. Mcloud (sic).

Please vote, and join me in electing Frank Sivo and Kelly Knight for School Committee on Monday, May 19th.
