Letter: Gammell Right Choice for City Council

Letters to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

I am writing to publicly express my support for Keifer Gammel for North Adams City Council. Keifer has a great deal of experience working with the North Adams Community. In his current position of visitor services manager at Mass MoCA, Keifer works to draw visitors to the museum, and to engage them in the community while they are here. He also serves on the North Adams Farmers Market Committee, and on the North Adams Chamber of Commerce board.

Keifer, a longtime North Adams resident, graduated from MCLA, where he was equally active in community engagement. As a student, he ran fundraisers and community programs through his fraternity. Keifer adopted this community as his own and stayed after graduation, dedicating his free time to community service and outreach.

I most admire Keifer for his dedication to community building. In my time working for the City of North Adams as the director of tourism and community events, Keifer was a great contact at Mass MoCA. He was always quick to help on projects that encouraged visitors to explore North Adams. I am impressed by his hours of commitment to community events, fundraisers, and economic development initiatives.

Most importantly, I think Keifer is the best candidate because he has a deep understanding of, and direct connection to, two of the main hubs of activity in North Adams: Mass MoCA, and MCLA. He will be a tremendous asset to the council.

With proud enthusiasm, I support Keifer Gammell as a candidate for North Adams City Council.

Edge, MCLA Men Earn MASCAC Shutout

WORCESTER, Mass. -- Mount Greylock Regional School graduate Sam Edge made four saves Saturday to earn a shutout as the MCLA men's soccer team earned its first MASCAC win of the season, 1-0, at Worcester State.
Junior Andrew Nygard scored the contest's only goal in the 31st minute, as he headed home a Ryan Wanek throw-in to put his team ahead 1-0.
In the second half, Worcester State (4-8, 1-3) poured on constant pressure, but just couldn't put the ball in the back of the net. In the 52nd minute, Worcester State had three consecutive brilliant scoring opportunities, but MCLA keeper Edge was up to the task with phenomenal diving saves on attempts from Laszlo Dorogi, Alfred Koroma and Prince Gyau.
Worcester State appeared to tie the game in 87th minute, but a Lincoln Henry goal was taken off the board after he was ruled offside on the play. Worcester State was unable to mount any more high-quality chances, and the Trailblazers (3-8, 1-3) escaped with the 1-0 victory.
