Print Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

On May 1, the town of Adams will vote in the newest member of the Board of Selectmen. Please join me in voting for Christine Hoyt. Christine's career in business and education, along with her volunteer pursuits, has provided her with the skillsets necessary to succeed.

Adams has its share of troubles but also it's a wonderful town with exciting things happening. We must have a leader poised to embrace both the struggles and the opportunities. We need someone who will listen and consider all sides, someone ready to collaborate and keep an open mind, someone determined to work hard and make a difference. We need Christine Hoyt.

Since moving to Adams 10 years ago with her husband, Peter, Christine has demonstrated a commitment to the town and surrounding Berkshire County community. Locally, she has served on the Adams Youth Center Board of Directors for eight years, the ProAdams Board of Directors for three years, she's been a town meeting member (precinct 1) for thee years, and on the Adams Economic Development Commission for the past two years. More broadly, she has served on the Downtown Pittsfield Inc. Board, worked with the Berkshire United Way, and with 1Berkshire through her work with the Berkshire Leadership Program.

Please join us on Thursday, April 20, at 5:30 p.m. at the Adams Ale House to talk with Christine about her plan for Adams. I look forward to seeing you there!

Leah Thompson
Adams, Mass.; Adams Resident and member of the Committee to Elect Christine Hoyt

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff

Reserve Police Officer Christopher Lampiasi is introduced to the board by Chief Richard Tarsa, right, on Wednesday. 
ADAMS, Mass. — The Selectmen have approved the ratification of a new reserve officer and a special police officer.
The Selectmen were happy to appoint new reserve Officer Christopher Lampiasi and special Police Officer Robert Mallet to the department Wednesday.
New appointments have been a regular event in the past year after the town dissolved the cumbersome Civil Service that limited who the town could hire.
Police Chief Richard Tarsa said Lampiasi is an Adams resident. He listed some of his credentials and said he has been through the reserve academy. He currently works for Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts' campus security and is a part time officer in Peru.
