Letter: Vote Shepard for Planning Board

Letters to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

I am writing to urge Williamstown residents to vote for Karen Shepard for Planning Board.

Karen, who teaches at Williams and has lived in the town for nearly 30 years, has a progressive vision for Williamstown that includes both economic development and open-space protection. She understands the two are connected, not opposed. She will promote affordable, mixed-income, and multi-family housing, all of which the town desperately needs.

Karen is the sort of person who gets things done. She's also good listener and has a great sense of humor. It's time for a change on the Planning Board, and Karen is exactly the right person to provide it.

The Main Street museum, which shut down in March because of the COVID-19 pandemic, was making final preparations for its 1 p.m. opening.
