Letter: Blackmer Best to Carry on My Sisterís Legacy

Letters to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

I am writing to express my support for Lisa Blackmer for state representative. I believe she is the best
candidate to fill the unexpired term of my sister, Gail.

Gail was committed to her district and the constituents she worked hard to serve. Lisa has that same dedication, compassion, and work ethic. She has gone above and beyond to advocate for our region in Boston through the Massachusetts Municipal Association and work hard right here at home as a city councilor.

Gail always fought the good fight and took on the tough challenges. She saw her role as one that should bring people together to solve problems and make progress for our district. Her legacy is one of grace, respect, and cooperation.

I am supporting Lisa because she has the experience, relationships, and vision to carry on Gail's legacy in Boston. She will be an amazing state representative and she has my vote on Oct. 10, I hope she has yours.

Antoinette Carridi
North Adams, Mass.

Cariddi is the sister of the late state Rep. Gailanned Cariddi

Rain, Rain and Then ... Snow? Wet Weekend Ahead

This weekend is starting off with icy rain that will switch to drenching, and then the beginning of the week could start with a foot of snow depending on which path a cross-country storm takes over the next couple days
 
The National Weather Service has a winter weather advisory in effect from Friday afternoon until 10 p.m. as light, freezing rain enters the region. The Albany, N.Y., office is warning there could be very slippery roads, sidewalks and bridges but the sleet should turn to just plain rain as the temperatures rise later in the day. 
 
That means Saturday will see warmer air and heavier rain, although there could be some dry spots in the afternoon. Max temps could reach into upper 40s and 50s, and it will continue to be cloudy and dreary through the day, according to NWS. Sunday's looking a bit better although colder.
 
Of more concern is a major storm system moving through the western states and heading into New England late Monday on the heels of the rainstorm.
