Good morning, Hopkinton! Welcome to the daily update we call Hopkinton Today — a quick recap of yesterday’s news, highlights of what’s on tap, and a photo of the day.
Dhaval Avlani has lived in Legacy Farms for the past 13 years with his wife and son. He came to Hopkinton on an H-1B visa as a worker with technical skills desirable to American companies. What has frustrated him and other Legacy Farms residents who also work under the H-1B visa program, he said, is that the monolithic process toward U.S. citizenship prevents them from having the right to vote on town issues that impact them as taxpayers. “I feel like it’s taxation without representation,” he said.
Hopkinton interim Fire Chief Gary Daugherty and the Hopkinton Fire Department have shared safety tips with community members as they plan to cook, bake and enjoy holiday meals over the coming days and weeks.
This week’s Library Corner includes information on programs such as Chess Club, women in science fiction and blackletter calligraphy.
Town meetings tonight include the Community Preservation Committee (7).
