The race for Select Board this year includes a couple of strong candidates. John Coutinho is one of them. I served with John in Town Hall for many years. I know he is dedicated, reasoned and focused on the issues that matter most to Hopkinton.
Beyond the excellent education our kids deserve, John recognizes the positive economic impact great schools have on our property values and our town. As he has done in the past, John will always protect our schools as a member of the Select Board.
John also understands how important public safety is to our community. No volunteer in town has worked harder in the last 10 years to be sure we can rest easy in our homes than John Coutinho. John will always keep an eye on the town departments that work tirelessly on our behalf!
Lastly, John is experienced in the budget process. He will make sure your hard-earned tax dollars bring the strongest return on investment possible to the Town of Hopkinton. John is very careful with our money!
On Monday, May 16th, please join me in casting one of your two votes for John Coutinho.
— Brian Herr, Hopkinton
