Letter: Blackmer Will Be Dedicated, Passionate Public Servant

Letters to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

My wife, Lisa Blackmer, is the most loving, hard-working, passionate person I know and she should be the
next representative for Northern Berkshire.

When we were married 30 years ago, our family included my children from a previous marriage. Lisa loved them and raised them as her own. I watched her take care of them when they were sick, shuttle them to football games, band and numerous other activities, and teach them all that she knows. She never once complained when I had to work long shifts or spent 15 months guarding the governor.

Working as a state trooper covering the whole region, I worked hard to keep the people of Northern Berkshire safe and meet their needs through some very demanding times. I've watched Lisa work just as hard and care just as much about the Northern Berkshires. I've never seen someone with more dedication and love for this region and our community.

She has worked hard and effectively on the City Council and in Boston advocating for our region. She has balanced work and family, always in the service of others. I have no doubt that as a state representative she will work just as hard, listen just as carefully, and love just as fully as she has as a mother, grandmother, wife, and public servant.

I will be proud to cast my vote for my wife, Lisa Blackmer, for state representative on Tuesday. I hope you will join me.

Bill Blackmer
North Adams, Mass.

Blackmer is the retired commander of the State Police's Cheshire Barracks and the husband of candidate Lisa Blackmer
