Letter: Amy Jeschawitz for Williamstown Planning Board

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

Williamstown will voters will face an important election on May 14, and it is crucial that Amy Jeschawitz be re-elected to the Planning Board.

When I first moved to Williamstown in 1988 as the principal of the Williamstown Elementary School, I was disappointed to note that new staff members hired at the school could not afford to live in Williamstown and had to find housing elsewhere. Unfortunately, the shortage of moderately-priced housing still exists. Given the importance of diversified housing choices for the economic future of our community, this is a very important issue.

As a member of the Planning Board, Amy recognizes this problem and has worked hard to provide solutions. At this year's town meeting we will vote on proposals that will help solve the problem. If we want to attract new families and businesses to town, it is imperative that we provide additional housing options.

Please join me in voting for Amy Jeschawitz for Planning Board on May 14.

'New Horizon' Reflective Hot-Air Balloon Visiting Berkshires


'New Horizon's' reflective material mirrors the world around it. 
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — A traveling art installation by Doug Aitken, "New Horizon," will float over the Berkshires this week. 
 
The 100-foot tall mirror hot-air balloon is the fourth installation in The Trustees of Reservations' "Art & the Landscape" series that was launched in 2016 to inspire new and expanded audiences at some of the organization's most scenic and highly visited gardens, historic houses, beaches, and public parks. 
 
Aitken set off in New Horizon on July 12 on Martha's Vineyard and will end his journey on Thursday, July 25, at Field Farm on Sloan Road. 
 
"When we invite artists to respond to our landscapes through their art for our 'Art & the Landscape' program, we expect inspired responses, but this project by Doug Aitken surpasses our expectations," said Barbara Erickson, Trustees president and chief executive. "He has taken not just the concept of the landscape but also the ideals of conservation, the values of social consciousness, and the nostalgia of the best summer road trips and blended them all in to a visually poetic manifestation of the New England summer."
