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 to Try Outdoor Dining on Spring Street Again Saturday

By Stephen DravisiBerkshires Staff
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Despite the vagaries of Mother Nature and the voices of those who raised concerns about the plan, the town plans to temporarily close Spring Street to vehicles the next two Saturday evenings to allow outdoor dining.
The initiative to help downtown restaurants that do not otherwise have outdoor space to set up tables was first tried on June 27.
Although the weather did not entirely cooperate that night, people who did have a chance to take advantage of the opportunity reacted positively on social media.
Organizers also got positive reactions, according to Jane Patton, the chair of the town's Select Board and vice president of the Williamstown Chamber of Commerce.
