About Jennifer Doyle


  1. The low turnout means that very few people determined the result for all. That’s a sad commentary about how we value our most sacred freedom!

  2. Stephen Matellian says:

    A heartfelt thank you to all my supporters throughout the campaign, from the sign holders, financial supporters, well-wishers and most importantly the voters! I am looking forward to serving the community as a member of the Upton Board of Selectmen. I would like to thank my running mates Shawn Craig and Brett Simas for their commitment to the community, hope you continue to support Upton in future endeavors. Once again thank you – Sincerely Stephen A Matellian
