I want to thank the four Hopkinton members of the Chariho School Committee on attending the Hopkinton Town Council meeting on Tuesday, February 19. I suggested having them attend, and it was productive, even though we may not have been in agreement. So I publicly through this forum thank George Abbott, Catherine Giusti, Lisa Macaruso, and Sylvia Stanley for attending. I also note Susan Rogers from the administration was also present.
To clarify for readers of this publication, I support school committee stipends. My original letter to this publication emailed on Thursday, February 14, said I supported the stipend. Published on Friday, February 15, it stated in "Hoping for big turnout at Hopkinton council meeting," because of editing of my emailed letter, it stated I was not for the stipend.
Any Hopkinton resident should feel free to contact me at (401) 360-4603 or (401) 212-9458, or at email@example.com, with any comments or concerns.
