This letter is in support of Nancy “Punky” Drawe for the five-year seat as a commissioner on the Hopkinton Housing Authority (HHA).
Nancy, known as Punky to most who know her, is a current commissioner of the Hopkinton Housing Authority after being appointed to fill an opening in 2021. She received unanimous support from the HHA commissioners and the members of the Select Board for this appointment and now is the incumbent seeking to be elected to the five-year seat on the HHA. I currently also serve as an HHA commissioner. I believe that Nancy brings thoughtful insight and advocacy to the table, and I appreciate the historical knowledge she adds to this board in regards to the residents’ needs. She is a trusted ally of the residents at the HHA and greatly desires to continue as a commissioner and support the needs of the Hopkinton Housing Authority’s efforts for its residents and properties.
Punky is generous with her time, whether as a fixture as an election worker at the polls, for activities at the Senior Center or supporting HHA. She previously has served on the Veterans Celebration Committee and planned the annual veterans recognition dinner. In addition, she has been a contributing writer for the Hilltopper senior newsletter and content contributor to other local media.
Please join me on May 16th and vote for Nancy “Punky” Drawe for Hopkinton Housing Authority, five-year seat.
— Darlene Hayes, Hopkinton
