To the Editor:
Mary Jo LaFreniere served as district coordinator in my senate office, representing Hopkinton for 10 years. During that time she exhibited, exquisitely, all the leadership qualities needed to be one of Hopkinton’s most effective selectmen ever: She is organized, committed, energetic, intelligent, collaborative and enormously personable, even in stressful situations. Her “marathon” service to Hopkinton is legendary. Throughout all of the challenging situations she faced as the senate district director, she was always friendly, collaborative and professional. I strongly believe that Hopkinton could not be better served than to elect Mary Jo LaFreniere to serve as their next selectman.
