To the Editor:

I am writing this letter in support of Tom Bernard's candidacy for the mayor of North Adams. I have had the pleasure of working with Tom on community-based initiatives for the past nine years, including partnerships involving MCLA and the city as well as business development groups, which eventually grew into the North Adams Chamber of Commerce.

I have continually been impressed with his ability to approach challenging issues with a balanced perspective. Tom was always a reliable resource who provided insightful, competent and intelligent information that was the result of his commitment to doing his homework about the relevant issues.

Tom's skill set is a complimentary balance of intellect and a solid work ethic. This skill set is transferable to the office of the mayor, as he will research the issues with a thoughtful approach and a perspective that facilitates solutions to serve the best interest of the city. He is a principled leader who provides a competent, detailed approach to problem-solving and is able to roll up his sleeves and do the work that is involved in getting results. Tom's broad range of educational endeavors and professional experience has enhanced his ability to be fair minded, hardworking and solutions-focused.

I am optimistic about Tom's ability to lead this city with a keen understanding of its history and its heritage, while being able to incorporate the economic and cultural opportunities that hold so much promise for the city that we all love and call home. Tom has the competencies, intellect, perspective and experience to serve as the next mayor of our city. I believe in Tom and I know how hard he will work for all of the residents of North Adams.

I ask that you please join me on Tuesday November 7 and vote Tom Bernard for the mayor of North Adams. Thank you.

Mike Boland
North Adams, Mass.

Plans presented to the Planning Board in 2018.
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The McDonald's on Union Street is in the process of being renovated inside and out with a more contemporary look. 
The plans were approved in November 2018 by the Planning Board and include the removal of the mansard roof and construction of a new patio area in the front. 
The fast-food burger chain launched the new look two years ago with plans to invest $6 billion to renovate most of its 14,000 locations by the end of 2020.
Changes include modernized dining areas with new furniture and "globally and locally inspired décor," according the release announcing the building overhauls in 2018.
