Letter: Bullett Endorses Blackmer for State Representative
To the Editor:
I served with Lisa Blackmer for almost six years on the North Adams City Council. In that capacity I had the opportunity to witness first hand her commitment to municipal government and the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make government work.
She was an active member of the Finance Committee, the Community Development Committee, and others. She currently she serves as a board member of the Massachusetts Municipal Association. Lisa always showed up for community events and fundraisers, and she was a good colleague.
I believe Lisa will be a zealous advocate for the needs of the communities that comprise the 1st Berkshire District. She will be able to work collaboratively with fellow legislators to address the issues of concern to our economy and community and work in partnership with local officials.
It is worth noting that barely one in four people who serve in the Massachusetts Legislature are women. I know that Lisa Blackmer is the strongest candidate to continue Gailanne Cariddi's vision and move her legislative agenda forward, and I urge residents of the district to vote for her on Tuesday, Oct. 10.
