To the Editor:
A very fine Vineyarder recently wrote a letter commending a Cape Cod resident she favors in the upcoming election for someone to replace Nantucket’s Tim Madden. I feel sure she has not had a chance to know the Vineyard’s Ewell Hopkins, experienced businessman, father of three, as I have in recent years. He was the first to be willing to enter the race when Mr. Madden announced his retirement. Ewell has worked here on the Vineyard both professionally and on boards, is as energetic a gentleman as I’ve been privileged to encounter, and would give a voice to matters of concern to us here.
