Ben Sparrell has announced his intention to run for a seat on the Holliston Finance Committee in the upcoming Town Election on May 23rd.

Ben Sparrell has announced his intention to run for a seat on the Holliston Finance Committee in the upcoming Town Election on May 23rd.

Sparrell, who grew up in Holliston’s Brentwood neighborhood, decided to seek the open seat on the Committee because “I believe we can find new ways to solve the current problems we face and that we can be more proactive in managing our future. I feel that I can provide a fresh perspective. With my professional experience in corporate finance, I bring with me a professional focus on managing money intelligently and collaboratively. I will apply that experience to the Finance Committees work with other organizations in the community”.

 “I want to give back to the town. I grew up in Holliston and have many great memories here” he says. “It’s a special place for me. The Sparrells have a long history in Holliston. My Great-Grandfather built a house from a Sears Catalog on High Street in the 1920s, and in the 1950’s his son built a house next door to raise his family. My grandmother still lives there 60 years later”.

“We need to hear more points of view, to talk to the people of Holliston” Sparrell says. “We need to find ways to collaborate and get more people involved in the Finance Committee and planning. Bring the committee to the people, be more proactive. That’s why I am asking for your vote on May 23rd”. 

Sparrell holds an MBA in finance from Northeastern University in addition to a Bachelor’s Degree in political science from Bridgewater State University. He currently works as a business analyst in Natick.

Ben Sparrell lives in Holliston with his wife Rebecca. In his spare time he enjoys photography and cooking.

Ben, I'd like to thank you and Jay Leary for the civility of this campaign. With so much vitriol occurring in national politics it is reassuring to know that we can be engaged in local politics without any negativity. I feel privileged to be on the ballot with you and Jay.

State House Update-Summer 2017

by Representative Carolyn Dykema

Dear Neighbor, Happy summer! I hope you are making the most of the warm weather and long days here in the 8th Middlesex District. Here in the State House, we have worked to finalize a fiscally stable FY18 state budget, continue to hold hearings for the 4,000+ bills that have been filed this session including major healthcare reforms, and are working to engage stakeholders on critical issues like climate impacts and immigration. This session I am the primary sponsor of 35 bills on issues ranging from veterans' preference in hiring to teen texting and driving. Two of my environmental priorities this session include H.2113, An Act to protect Massachusetts pollinators and H.2115, An Act relative to drought management. More information about all of the bills I've filed can be found on the legislative website. If you have questions about any of this legislation, I'd welcome the chance to discuss them. Input from you is essential to the work I do to represent you at the State House. Please stay in touch. Warmly, Carolyn Dykema
