NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — Mayoral candidate Ron Boucher would like to thank all supporters who participated in the campaign kick-off event on Sept. 14, and the Meet-The-Candidate Picnic on Sept. 18.
"It was really great meeting some new faces and hearing what you all have to say. I appreciate you taking the time to show your support for getting 'Back to Basics.' The turnout at these events clearly shows that residents in North Adams are unhappy," said Boucher, currently City Council president. "In the upcoming weeks, my campaign will be releasing press releases to the media each week regarding important issues facing this city, and I look forward to debating these issues with my opponent.
"Please remember, preliminary day is next Tuesday, Sept. 27. At this crucial point in time for our city, it is very important that all residents take the time to make their voices heard and vote. I would like to ask for your support in this pivotal election for the future of North Adams."

I voted for the mayor last time, but have become disillusioned with the lack of transparency and tax increases.
Very impressed with Ron today during the debate. He was very clear and concise with his ideas. I hear the talk around town, and Ron's support is growing tremendously.
Ron has to accept some of the blame if he believes "...residents of North Adams are unhappy...". Being part of the City Council, and President no less, he did not show any leadership to address or change the items he is now campaigning against. Why should the residents of NA think he will now be a leader.
