Letter: Pittsfield Public Schools: Opportunity for Change

The Pittsfield Public Schools are struggling, but unlike the past the problem isn't a lack of funding it's a lack of vision and leadership. We cannot hope to give our children the schools they deserve unless we adequately staff them. What should be abundantly clear to our leaders and elected officials is the fact that we cannot begin to properly staff our schools unless we start to compensate people (our teachers and support staff) fairly for the important work that they do.

Letter: Look to Hope of Future, Not Ways of Past: Vote for Bond

I don't want North Adams to go back to what it was 12 years ago. I like knowing that when I see the city's mayor, despite the many pressures of their job, I'm going to be received with a warm handshake or embrace. I like knowing that if I've got some time and a means of being productive that I can engage in my hometown in whatever capacity I choose.
