PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Mayoral candidate Pam Malumphy is giving apples to teachers and administrators at Pittsfield High School and Taconic High School on the first official day of school Wednesday, Sept. 2.
Malumphy has been a consistent advocate of renovating the two high schools rather than what she says is a the costly and questionable move to build a single new high school.
"When I was on the City Council, I petitioned to have the School Building Needs Commission re-activated in order to facilitate a discussion as to why we were seeing such high dropout rates," she said. "Over the years, the conversation turned toward the construction of a new high school and abandoning our two existing schools. I have consistently opposed this position preferring instead to advocate for the renovation of our two great existing high schools." Submitted by the Campaign to Elect Pam Malumphy
