Editorial: Endorsing Beth Malloy for Constable

By contributor,

I am pleased to endorse Beth Malloy for Constable (2-year seat). It was no surprise that Beth stepped up to fill the seat she currently holds; volunteerism, advocacy, and fairness are part of Beth’s character. In addition to working professionally in a capacity to help others, Beth continues to devote much of her time to additional volunteer roles, including offering rescue dogs a warm and safe foster environment and serving as a compassionate care companion in Milford Regional Hospital’s palliative care unit.

Editorial: Endorsing Shahidul Mannan for Select Board

By contributor,

I challenge anyone who meets Shahidul Mannan to not be inspired by his positivity, professionalism and unyielding public service.

For nearly a decade, Shahidul has dutifully and intelligently served our community on critical Boards and Committees (namely, the Planning Board, the Appropriation Committee, the Community Preservation Committee and the Growth Study Committee). These government boards don't get due attention for their importance but matter profoundly for the pressing issues facing Hopkinton in the years to come.
