Letter: Vote for Integrity

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

The person who occupies the White House in Washington, D.C. today just openly encouraged his supporters to break the law, by voting twice — once by mail, and once in person — suggesting that this would "test the system."

Trump, like many fascist and totalitarian leaders of the past century, advocates breaking the law and then accuses his opponents of breaking the law; he advocates disrupting the system, and tries his best to ensure that the voting system does not work, and then says the election is rigged. This person must be removed from power.

Responsible people, including conservatives and independents, are making the best move by supporting an honest man, one with integrity, for president — Joe Biden may not satisfy everyone's policy preferences, but he will bring integrity back to the federal government. It is important to work everywhere for fair voting, including the end of gerrymandering that rigs elections in favor of the party in power.

It is time for a tidal change in the United States of America — a time to move forward for real democratic government, for integrity and honesty in public life, a time to work for the common good of all people. I urge everyone to vote in November — either in person OR by mail, not both — and preferably by using municipal drop boxes for mail-in votes. Vote, and make your voice heard! Bring honesty and integrity back to government.

Cheshire Receives Funds to Address Route 116

By Jack GuerinoiBerkshires Staff
CHESHIRE, Mass. — The town has received partial funding through a MassWorks grant to pave a portion of Route 116.
Highway Superintendent Robert Navin told the Selectmen on Tuesday that the town received $200,000 from the state to pave about half of the state road.
"That is the big news and at least we can pave the worst half of it, the upper section," he said. "That will be as soon as the weather breaks."
Navin said the town first applied for the project in full through MassWorks, but they were unsuccessful.
