Editorial: Endorsing Shahidul Mannan for Board of Selectmen

Dear Editor,

I’m writing to encourage Hopkinton voters to elect Shahidul Mannan to the Board of Selectmen. Shahidul has served several years on the Appropriation Committee, is well versed in Hopkinton’s growth and financial management, and brings strategic management experience that will enable more proactive leadership by the board.

I’ve had the privilege to work with Shahidul in a professional capacity at EMC and as a town volunteer during Marathon Elementary School planning and construction. In both cases, I have observed Shahidul Mannan to be a leader grounded in competence and substance.

With Hopkinton’s annual budget now approaching $100 million, I consider it critical that our Board of Selectmen include volunteers with financial and strategic management expertise. Shahidul Mannan brings much needed financial and strategic competence, along with a demeanor well suited to productive collaboration with fellow volunteers, town staff, and the community.

Please join me in electing Mannan for Selectman on Monday, May 20th.

Endorsement Submitted by: Joe Markey

Edward Frank Bell, 95

Edward Frank Bell, 95, of Hopkinton, MA and formerly of Wyomissing, Pennsylvania, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully on Thursday, May 9, 2019. Born in Bronx, NY, he was the son of the late Maria (D’Andrea) and Michael A. Bell. He was the husband of the late Florence (Pantano) Bell.

A graduate of James Monroe High School in the Bronx, he joined the US Navy after Pearl Harbor, where he was a PT boat mechanic in the Pacific. Additionally, he served in the Korean War. Afterwards, he joined Crompton & Knowles, and after 40 years, retired in 1993. During that time, he was transferred to Reading, Pennsylvania in 1975, where he supervised the clothing dyes plant. Ed loved working on his house, with no task too difficult to complete himself. He could build or fix anything, and always had a house project he was working on. Being outside and working on his garden brought him great joy, and even into his 90’s he was taking care of his lawn and landscaping. He was an avid cook, and insisted on teaching his grandchildren how to make pasta from scratch. He enjoyed watching classic films, but most importantly he excelled in building very complex model ships. He started with PT boats and through the years, moved to exquisitely detailed 18th century U.S Naval warships. Ed always put his family first and cherished spending time with all his relatives. A loving father and grandfather, he was looking forward to being a great-grandfather this fall.

Ed is survived by his son, Mark Edward Bell and his wife, Gayle Gonthier-Bell of Hopkinton, and two grandchildren, Jeffrey M. Bell and Marissa G. Bell. He is predeceased by his daughter, Karen J. Bell, who passed in 2008. A memorial service will be held in Pennsylvania. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Ovarian Cancer Research Foundation,, in memory of his daughter, Karen. Arrangements are under the care of the Chesmore Funeral Home of Hopkinton,
