I am writing this letter of support for Mary Jo LaFreniere for Hopkinton Select Board!
She has lived here for over 40 years and has the institutional knowledge of what Hopkinton needs and has all Hopkinton citizens’ interests at heart.
She served on the Board of Assessors, even as chair, and understands the tax assessments of the real estate in Hopkinton.
She is a massive advocate for our Police and Fire Departments!
For many years she was a Boy Scout leader and loved providing training and guidance to the young men in our community to teach them how to be good citizens.
She was the past district director for former state Sen. David Magnani and understand how the government is run at the state level.
She understands the town’s fiscal budgets and the balance needed for the residential tax base deeply.
She has served on the Hopkinton Marathon Committee for 35 years and even was honored as one of the wave starters five years ago.
Please join me in voting for Mary Jo for Select Board!
— Liisa Jackson, Hopkinton
