On February 11, HopNews released the seventh episode of our original podcast The HopTake. In this episode, Peter and Jim discuss the firing of Sgt. Tim Brennan and the events surrounding it. We also reveal previously undisclosed information about a November 2023 deal that would have brought Brennan back to work, and dig into Hopkinton’s new Town Accountant, who was recently fired by the City of Woonsocket. Finally, we take a trip back in time to Hopkinton’s earliest days.
