For the past four years, I’ve had the pleasure of working with Shahidul Mannan through my work on the Select Board and his work on the Appropriation Committee. Through this work, I’ve come to appreciate his dedication to the town and to respect his insight, particularly when we develop our budgets. Leadership is critical in the role of Select Board member, as is the ability to listen to the needs of our constituents. Shahidul has both.
His work for the town is not limited to his seven-year tenure on the Appropriation Committee; he has also served on the Planning Board, Growth Study Committee and Community Preservation Committee. His MBA in finance has been invaluable. Shahidul’s experience, expertise, ability to listen and problem solve, and dedication to the town make him a valuable asset for Hopkinton. I’m proud to endorse Shahidul Mannan for Select Board.
— Irfan Nasrullah, Hopkinton
