I am writing today with hope that you will read and vote for the best candidate in our upcoming election, not the one pushed by your party. I recently moved to unenrolled, in fact, because there are good unenrolled candidates, too! In fact, I wanted to run for Parks & Rec last year but was discouraged by two P&R members because they wanted a different person to win. I think voters should decide, and vote for the best candidate, not as influenced by others.
I have lived here for about 30 years, so while not officially a townie myself, my kids consider this their hometown. I have participated more and lived here longer than any other place in my life. I love our town! Regarding our upcoming election, I urge you to think about the balance that is needed to represent our town, and the experience and abilities each candidate adds to our board. Please consider what is best for Hopkinton and vote as you believe, not as influenced by another person or party. I believe we should get rid of partisan politics and work together as a town.
— Margie Wiggin, Hopkinton
