We enthusiastically support Laura English Marwill to be Hingham’s new Town Clerk.
Laura’s qualifications preparing her for this important position are impeccable. Her educational background (Hingham Public Schools, College of the Holy Cross), financial experience (vice president at BankBoston, Chartered Financial Analyst 2001-2012), and, most importantly, town government responsibilities (Advisory Committee for 6 years, volunteer election worker over four national, state and local election cycles) constitute an excellent resume for becoming Hingham’s next Town Clerk. Moreover, Laura’s warm, enthusiastic and welcoming graciousness are qualities much desired in someone occupying a town position that requires more daily interaction with the public than any other.
Hingham has become the special community it is because throughout its long history it has had generous and civic-minded citizens willing to commit themselves to making it better. Laura is the embodiment of this continuing commitment.
The office of Town Clerk is, by law, non-partisan and Laura is committed to upholding the integrity and sanctity of the office. We know who she is, and that she’s the right person for the job. As former Hingham town officers (including Town Clerk and members of the Select Board, Advisory Committee, School Committee, Historical Commission, Library Trustees, Veterans’ Council, Zoning Board of Appeals) and involved citizens, we invite you to join us in voting for Laura for Town Clerk on May 22.
