I am writing to support Amy Ritterbusch’s candidacy for the Select Board.
Amy serves the town in a multitude of roles, including as an elected member of the Planning Board, chair of the Growth Study Committee and chair of the Hopkinton Center Historic District Commission. She is also a founding member of eHop, an independent organization whose mission is to increase town government transparency and foster civic engagement. Among this group’s many important efforts has been the sponsorship of several Spotlight Forums which have involved citizens from across the community, town board members, public safety and elected officials. These have focused on subjects ranging from water resources, town fields and facilities, pedestrian and traffic safety to town growth and development. Amy is a consensus-seeker who practices transparency and community outreach. She is a staunch advocate for Hopkinton citizens as a whole, who gives generously of her time and will serve us well as a member of the Select Board.
Please join me in voting for Amy Ritterbusch.
— Anne Mattina, Hopkinton
