Letter: Blackmer Best Choice to Succeed Cariddi

Letters to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

Lisa Blackmer is the perfect candidate to follow the irreplaceable Gailanne Carriddi.

Rep. Carriddi was a strong voice for women during her too-brief career in the State House, and I believe that North Adams City Councilor Lisa Blackmer is a worthy successor to represent the district in the House. She mirrors Gail's public service to her home city; she has both public and private business experience and a deep commitment to North Berkshire.

I am not a resident in the district, but the Berkshire County legislative contingent has always hung together in its advocacy for our home county. I have always felt that my friend Gail represented me, too. I miss her sorely and want her successor to reflect her passion for service to us.

Please consider casting your vote for Lisa Blackmer.
