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.
