My name is Jon Graziano, and I am running for School Committee. My wife, Erin, and I moved to Hopkinton two years ago. As the parents of three young children (ages 6, 4 and 1), one of the primary reasons we were attracted to the town was the school system, and our experience so far has validated that decision. Over the past year I have been the Appropriations Committee liaison to the School Committee.

My name is Mary Murphy and I am supporting Jean Bertschmann for School Committee because she is a hard worker and has a wealth of history and knowledge about the Hopkinton schools. With 4 children (often spanning one in each school), she didn’t just sit back and watch things happen- she got involved!

I worked with Jean when we both served on the HHS School Council. I have observed her to be a level headed, thoughtful leader. She has a quiet way of listening and educating herself and others on the needs of our town.

I am writing to endorse Jean Bertschmann for re-election for School Committee. I have
known Jean for over ten years. We met when our daughters were in kindergarten
together. She has been a friend and someone I have worked with in several capacities
over the years. I was able to see Jean in action as she led the HPTA. She was forward-
thinking, innovative, approachable and very dedicated. She attended all the events,
whether she needed to or not, just to show her support. I became active with the SPEAC
