Letter: Boyd Will Bring Fresh Perspective to Planning Board

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

I am writing to endorse Stephanie Boyd for the Williamstown Planning Board.

I have known Stephanie for almost 17 years. During that time, I have seen her tackle many different roles and interact with many different types of people. Whether working as the head of sustainability at the Williams Zilkha Center, orchestrating a major fundraiser for the Berkshire Immigrant Center, starting a highly-successful pottery business from scratch, or helping the Sand Springs board raise the funds to create a community pool, Stephanie has brought her wealth of experience, thoughtfulness, and sense of fairness to every endeavor.

She has an impressive educational background, including a bachelor's degree in civil engineering as well as an MBA. If elected to the Planning Board, I believe Stephanie will work tirelessly to support economic development and help create jobs, while remaining sensitive to our historic roots and the natural beauty that graces our town.

As those of you who know her may attest, Stephanie is a unique, energetic and talented individual, and I believe she will bring a fresh perspective to the Planning Board. Please join me in voting for her on May 8.
