Letter: Vote for Mayor Tom

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

On Tuesday, November 5, I will vote to give Tom Bernard a second term as Mayor of North Adams. Two years seems like an awfully short time to judge a Mayor, but so far the man has kept the positive momentum of the city going, has shown up for everything, and has demonstrated a capacity for leadership.

Mayor Bernard has committed himself to working to create a successful, inclusive and safe community, and I think he has earned the right to stay in his job.

Richard Taskin
North Adams, Mass.

Isaias to Bring Rain, Wind to Northeast

A tropical storm warning has been issued for Massachusetts and Connecticut as now-Hurricane Isaias was nearing landfall along the Carolinas' coasts. Rain in the region is expected to start during the night on Monday and continue through Wednesday.
 
"Along and just northwest of the I-95 corridor of the mid-Atlantic and southern New England, heavy windblown rain with embedded thunderstorms will be the central theme from Isaias," AccuWeather Northeast weather expert Elliot Abrams said on Monday. 
 
Isaias is expected to make landfall Monday night as a Category 1 and shift inland, with Accuweather saying the eye of what should then be a tropical storm moving north over the Berkshires by late Tuesday. The National Weather Service in Albany is says it will impact southeast New York by Tuesday night and New England by early Wednesday morning. 
 
"Confidence is increasing with respect to the magnitude of local hazards and impacts," according to NWS. "Locally heavy rainfall and gusty winds are the main impacts from Tropical Storm Isaias."
