Martin Luther King Day in Hopkinton began in 2006, when Linda Katz, who had seen a national initiative called the National Day of Giving Back, brought it to the Youth Commission as a way to make MLK day a “Day on, not a day off” for our youth. Linda organized this event for the Youth Commission for 4 years, at which point, Margie Wiggin, current Chair of the Youth Commission, took it over and continued the tradition.

Video: Selectmen Discuss Fire Chief Position at Jan 5th Meeting

The Board of Selectmen further discussed the Fire Chief position. After Chief Ken Clark announced his retirement starting in 2016, the initial search process led to two final candidates, current Framingham Chief Gary Daugherty and Hopkinton "Deputy Fire Chief" Stephen Slaman. After Daugherty dropped his candidacy just prior to the last Selectmen meeting on December 15th, the Selectmen decided to reopen the search process to seek more candidates and made Stephen Slaman interim Fire Chief with full powers starting in 2016.

After criticism about the decision from many residents, Selectmen revisited the decision and decided to collect resumes and data to see if there are other candidates to consider after the interim period for Chief Slaman expires on March 31st. The Board of Selectmen plan to have a decision on if there will be a further interview process prior to the March 31st deadline of Stephen Slaman's interim contract.

So how did the Selectmen reach this decision? See the video below for more.
