To the Editor:

The Massachusetts Women's Political Caucus Political Action Committee is a nonpartisan organization that recruits, trains and seeks to elect qualified women to public office. Over the 2019 election cycle, we have proudly announced our endorsements and rolled out support for numerous women running for office across the commonwealth including North Adams City Councilor Marie Harpin and Lisa Hall Blackmer, who are running for City Council in North Adams.

Councilor Marie Harpin, an incumbent, has been a passionate advocate for North Adams growth in the cultural economy along with farming and advanced manufacturing, leading to a diverse economy attracting workers to the area. She grew up in North Adams and is proud to be giving back to the community. Her dedication to the people of North Adams is a vital voice for all.

Lisa Hall Blackmer, a former city councilor, served on the North Adams City Council as president and vice president. She understands the challenges facing North Adams in planning and legislation. As an experienced lawmaker, we think she can work collaboratively to achieve success and bring meaningful growth to the community.

These women are demonstrably fierce advocates for social justice and passionate, collaborative leaders. With their voices in City Hall, they will ensure a bright and thriving North Adams for all.

North Adams City, School Officials Elect Daunis to School Committee

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — City and school officials on Thursday unanimously elected Emily Daunis to fill a vacant seat on the School Committee. 
Daunis, who ran unsuccessfully last year, was one of eight candidates who expressed interest in the vacancy.  
"I know how fortunate we are to have so many exceptional candidates and unfortunately we're only able to select one," said School Committee Vice Chairwoman Heather Boulger. "And I am putting forward the name of Emily Daunis, who's active already within the school system and is kind of catalyst in already making school policy change, and also happens to be the first runner up from the election from last year."
Boulger's nomination was seconded by City Councilor Jason LaForest.
