A and Peter recap the absolute madness that was the Select Board’s public hearing to consider the termination of Hopkinton Police Sergeant Tim Brennan. We also discuss the friction between the Town Clerk and Select Board over voting rights for green card holders, we explore the local real estate market and its impact on taxpayers, and we share the story of the Hayden Rowe Hall, which once hosted a speech given by the great Frederick Douglass.
