I am writing to offer my support for Shahidul Mannan for Select Board.
Shahidul is sincere, honest and works for our community. People may not know this, as the committees that he has served on do not receive much public attention, but they are critical for the town’s success. He has tirelessly served on the Appropriations Committee for seven years, overseeing our budget and managing its growth from $70 million to over $100 million today. He also served on the Growth Study Committee for two years analyzing our growth issues and giving ideas for managing it. Currently he is serving on the Planning Board and focusing on affordability issues.
His background and knowledge in finance is a great asset. Shahidul is involved in the town happenings and is very knowledgeable regarding the challenges that face Hopkinton. He will bring his professional experience and problem-solving strategies to help better our lives in Hopkinton.
Please join me in voting for Shahidul Mannan for Select Board.
— Meena Kaushik, Hopkinton
