Editorial: Hopkinton Resident Responds to Photo in Local Publication

Dear Editor,

It has come to my attention that a photograph featuring me has been used in connection with a news article written in support of the Massachusetts Bail Fund. The photograph was taken when I was standing behind Muriel Kramer while waiting to speak at a Hopkinton town meeting.

The publication that printed the photo, the Hopkinton Independent, did so without my permission and has removed my photo from their website. Unfortunately, the image has already been shared on social media and my picture now appears in connection with the bail fund.

To be clear, I have no affiliation with the Massachusetts Bail Fund and I personally do not support bailing out violent criminals with donated funds. My thoughts and prayers are with the victims of these horrible crimes.

Warm regards,
Jackie Potenzone
