Letter: Blackmer Right Choice for City Council

Letter 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 re-elected to the North Adams City Council.

When we were married 32 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 our community. I've never seen someone with more dedication and love for our city.

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 she will continue to 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 North Adams City Council on Tuesday. I hope you will join me.

Bill Blackmer
North Adams, Mass.

Monroe Leads MCLA Men Past Rivier

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. -- Ki-Shawn Monroe scored a career best 18 points and pulled down 10 rebounds to lead the MCLA men's basketball team to a convincing 92-69 win this afternoon over visiting Rivier in the Amsler Campus Center on Saturday.
 
In the opening half, the MCLA defense held Rivier to just 26% shooting while the home team converted on a sizzling 67% of their attempts.

The Trailblazers would continue the offensive onslaught and lead 53-28 at the half.
