Submitted by Maura McNamara
I am witting to endorse Jean Bertschmann for re-election for School Committee. I have known Jean for over ten years. We met when our daughters were in kindergarten together. She has been a friend and someone I have worked with in several capacities over the years. I was able to see Jean in action as she led the HPTA. She was forwardthinking, innovative, approachable and very dedicated. She attended all the events, whether she needed to or not, just to show her support. I became active with the SPEAC (Special Education Parent Advisory Council) board and have been the liaison to the School Committee. I always found Jean willing to listen and advocate for all Hopkinton school children. Jean is very intelligent, a graduate of Williams College, cool-headed, open, approachable, hard-working and dedicated to ensuring that the children of Hopkinton receive a great education. These attributes, along with her experience from the last year, will serve us well, as we figure out solution/solutions for Center School.
This is why I am supporting Jean for School Committee on May 21st in the polls.
