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 video or two to brighten your morning.
Last Tuesday’s primary election drew 3,790 Democrats, 724 Republicans, 10 Libertarians and four Green-Rainbow members in Hopkinton (although the latter two parties had no candidates on the ballot). Hopkinton voters supported the winners in all but one race — the Democratic primary for Congress, in which town Democrats backed Jesse Mermell, who lost to Jake Auchincloss in a tight race that was not finalized until Friday.
The Select Board meets tonight (6) in its final scheduled meeting before Saturday morning’s Town Meeting. The board will discuss the acceptance of Legacy Farms Road North and review additional articles on the warrant. The complete warrant, which has 22 articles, can be found at the town’s website.
The Planning Board is seeking residents interested in serving on the Growth Study Committee, which has one open position. Click here for more information.
