I have resigned from the Hopkonton Town Council.  Three kids, one wife, and two companies is just too much. I hope they still allow me to work with the council on the school choice initiative – I have been given indication that they will.  My resignation letter is pasted below.

I also won’t be posting on this blog anymore but will continue at – one blog is enough. Thanks,

Dear President Buck,

It is with great sadness that I write this letter of resignation as a member of the Hopkinton Town Council, effective immediately.

It has been a pleasure to work with all of the members of the Committee. While we didn’t always agree, and I often found myself on the more “radical” side of government reform, I am convinced that all of the members of the Committee have their hearts in the right place and are doing what they think is best for the community.

Unfortunately, due to family and business commitments that have grown considerably since my election, I am unable to fulfill my commitment to the voters of Hopkinton. However, I do hope that we are able to move forward with the proposed school choice initiative in the near future. I will be unavailable until the end of March but look forward to speaking with you more on this issue at that time.

Thank you for the opportunity to serve the community and your support in my efforts and if there is anything I can do to make this transition happen more smoothly, please do not hesitate to contact me.

Respectfully yours,

William J. Felkner
