Letter: Stephanie Bosley Will Provide Fresh Ideas in Boston

Letters to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

I am writing to voice my support for Stephanie Bosley in the race for state representative from the 1 st Berkshire District.

Stephanie recently spent an hour with me discussing her impressive educational background and experience, as well as her reasons for running for this position. I believe she will be a tremendous advocate for our region, particularly on environmental and agricultural issues. She understands keenly the need to balance economic development with environmental protection and supports further expansion of renewable energy.

Stephanie also understands that the farm sector is important to the local economy and supports increasing tax credits and other protections for dairy farmers. She will also promote bike paths – for both recreation and commuting. Working for numerous local and national organizations such as: Soldier On, the Northern Berkshire Community Coalition, the
Community Development Department in the town of Adams, the American Cancer Society and 1Berkshire has given Stephanie hands-on knowledge of the needs facing our people and communities.

She will be a tireless advocate for us in Boston, and I hope you will join me on Oct. 10 in supporting her in the Democratic primary.

Williamstown Fire District Seeks Candidates for Governing Body Spots

By Stephen DravisiBerkshires Staff

Prudential Committee members Ed Briggs, left, and Ed McGowan participate in Wednesday's meeting.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The Fire District has targeted Oct. 29 for a special election to fill two new seats on the Prudential Committee.

Now it just needs candidates to fill those seats.
 
In 2018, district voters OKed a proposal to expand the three-member committee that oversees the district. The enabling legislation to change the district's charter was approved in Boston at the end of the most recent session.
 
Rather than wait until its regular election in May, the committee wants to open the new positions as soon as possible, which means an aggressive election calendar that would see nomination papers available in early September and due by the middle of the month.
 
"Nomination papers need to be back and certified 49 days prior to the election," district Clerk/Treasurer Corydon Thurston told the committee at Wednesday's monthly meeting.
