I am writing to offer my support for Shahidul Mannan for Select Board.
During these difficult times regarding COVID, economy, ARPA [American Rescue Plan Act] funds, etc., there is no better time than now to elect Shahidul. The town needs experience more than ever, and his resume speaks for itself.
Shahidul has served on the Appropriation Committee for seven years, a position responsible for overseeing the town’s budget and taking part of managing its growth. With his experience and having an MBA in finance, Shahidul has a firm grasp on how to balance a budget, monitor our taxes and be fiscally responsible.
Shahidul is very active in town government. Currently he serves on the Planning Board, and he was appointed to the Community Preservation Committee. He has also served on the Growth Study Committee.
Shahidul is dedicated and committed to seeing our town thrive. You can feel that passion and energy when he speaks. I can personally say he is an honest and caring man for his family and our town.
Shahidul’s education and experience is top-notch, but his passion and drive surpasses most. Please join me in voting for Shahidul Mannan for Select Board.
— Patrick Atwell, Hopkinton
