Letter: Support Stephanie Boyd for Williamstown Planning Board
To the Editor:
I encourage my fellow Williamstown voters to go to the polls on Tuesday, May 8, and elect Stephanie Boyd to a five-year term to the Planning Board.
I have come to know Ms. Boyd first through her work at Williams College as director of the Zilkha Center for Environmental Initiatives, and then through her serving on the Williamstown Conservation Commission. Ms. Boyd is a person of considerable energy and clarity of thought. Her training as a civil engineer enables her to solve problems for the benefit of us all. In her roles at both the Zilkha Center and on the Conservation Commission (where she is currently vice chair), she got things done, collaborating with others and making situations neither simpler or more complicated than they deserved.
On the Conservation Commission, she has been a quick learner in understanding the complex laws and regulations pertaining to the administration of the Massachusetts Wetlands Protection Act. She asks insightful questions in a courteous, respectful manner that help to clarify the situation for the applicants and ConCom as well. Ms. Boyd's skills and experience will translate well into service on the Planning Board, and we will all benefit from her participation there.
Henry W. Art
