Norman Khumalo has done a fantastic job in Hopkinton for over a decade. His dedication and passion for excellence is second to none. Should he accept a new position he will be missed! His collaboration and focus with several strong Select Boards has propelled Hopkinton forward.
Unfortunately this is yet another significant loss for the community under the current Select Board’s watch. Their inability to retain key personnel, including numerous public safety employees, must be addressed immediately. If not, the town will soon be adrift like a ship without a rudder. The current Select Board’s lack of vision for our future, based on our local needs, continues to erode our collective potential. We need a board that understands when it comes to Hopkinton’s future, it all starts here!
— John Coutinho, Hopkinton (candidate for Select Board)
