Letter: Vote Winters in Planning Board Election
To the Editor:
I am writing this post to support Chris Winters' bid for re-election to the Williamstown Planning Board.
For Williamstown residents, the right decision, the easy decision, is Chris Winters. Chris has served on the Planning Board for 10-plus years, and I am grateful that someone with such significant experience and knowledge is willing to serve another term. Chris has worked consistently to support the objectives in the Williamstown Master Plan while remaining well-grounded by an understanding of the challenges Williamstown faces.
These challenges include expanding economic opportunity, preserving our rural character, creating diverse housing options, keeping taxes affordable, maintaining top-notch schools and continuing to provide excellent public services.
Chris brings a rational approach and balanced perspective to issues that come before the Planning Board. He is pragmatic, thoughtful and attentive to the needs of all of Williamstown's residents. By definition, the Planning Board is concerned about the future of Williamstown. That future will be determined by the rules and regulations we put in place.
Smart and flexible planning will bring more opportunity to Williamstown. Chris has the experience and the vision Williamstown needs to plan for a brighter future. Please vote for Chris Winters on Tuesday, May 9. Polls are open at the Williamstown Elementary School from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m.
