General statement: My name is Patrick Atwell and I am running for the three-year term for constable.

I have been a resident of Hopkinton since 2012, My wife and I really enjoy the small town charm and the wonderful school system for our kids that Hopkinton has to offer. Because of this, I wanted to give back to the community and decided to volunteer and be active throughout the town. I currently serve on the Veterans Celebration Committee and was on the Planning Board.

Professionally I am a business agent/contract negotiator for SEIU 888. I received my Juris Doctorate from Massachusetts School of Law and Bachelor of Science from Northeastern University, and I am also a certified negotiator/mediator. With my work experience combined with my education in understanding and applying the law, I would make a great addition to the town as constable.

If elected, I will become a member of the Massachusetts Bay Constable Association (MBCA). The MBCA is a valuable resource in becoming a better constable through training and networking with other constables throughout the state. I will also be bonded through MBCA.

Thank you for your consideration, I respectfully ask for your vote on June 29.
