Editorial: Endorsing Dawn Ronan for School Committee

contribute's picture

I am pleased to endorse Dawn Ronan for School Committee. Dawn will be a powerful voice for our children because she always has the underdogs in mind: students who might have educational needs that don't fit in with the mainstream; children and parents for whom a policy is too expensive; or community members that might not be heard. Dawn was a fellow Girl Scout leader for many years and, while I served as the town Girl Scout Coordinator, Dawn was certain to come to me to make sure policies were fair to all and applied equally to all.

With great enthusiasm, I endorse Amy Ritterbush for Hopkinton Select Board. I have known Amy for several years as a fellow Girl Scout leader and as a fellow member of the Historic District Commission and Claflin Fountain Restoration Committee. In her many endeavors, Amy is always exceptionally prepared and arrives with a thorough understanding of the facts before her. She ensures that the rules are followed and evenly applied. Hopkinton will be well-served by Amy's leadership on the Hopkinton Select Board.

I happily express my support for Amy Ritterbusch for Select Board. Amy and I met four years ago, and we had a brief discussion about eHop and how it came to fruition. What immediately impressed me about Amy was that she not only wanted to be informed but also wanted to help others be informed in order to strengthen our community. She has served on the Planning Board and Historic District Commission in this vein by being prepared, sourcing and sharing objective information and making thoughtful decisions.

It is with pleasure that I endorse Lya Batlle-Rafferty for School Committee. Lya and I have served on the Board of Assessors together since 2017, and I have seen firsthand her dedication to the Town and commitment to elected office. Lya is a thoughtful decision maker who takes the time to evaluate issues with both data and compassion in order to best support our residents. She will bring this same discerning approach to the School Committee as we face the challenges of maintaining our outstanding schools within our financial means.

Dawn Ronan is definitely a voice of the people and even more importantly, a voice for our youth. I have had the pleasure of knowing and working with Dawn for almost three years. I have witnessed her passion for programming that helps develop leadership skills and foster community service with our youth of Hopkinton. I have seen her fight for access and inclusion for all of the families here in Hopkinton. She not only sees a need and does her best to fill it, she actively looks around town and asks, what is the need? Dawn is beyond hard working and selfless.

Dear Editor and fellow Hopkinton residents:

When it comes to establishing partisan division in our town, I ask you to NOT let “It all start here”.

I’m an “Unenrolled” voter (aka – Independent) and I’ve supported both blue and red candidates over the last decade and beyond. If anyone cares, I did not support the current administration in the last Presidential election.
