Brian Karp Announces Run for School Committee

Dear Hopkinton Residents,

My name is Brian Karp, and I am pleased to announce my candidacy for School Committee.  My decision to run came after the School Committee approved the 2015-2016 school calendar eliminating traditional days off for religious holidays.  I believe that the School Committee's action erodes family values − values that help make our community strong.
