Letter: Jennifer Macksey for Mayor

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

Jennifer Macksey is quite simply the best mayoral candidate for North Adams. As any of Jen's coworkers, current or former, will tell you, Jen is a strong independent woman who has been successful in every position she has held. I have personally seen her incredibly strong work ethic and she puts her whole heart into everything she does — just imagine what she will do for the city she loves.

What an incredible benefit to have our new mayor walk into City Hall with the knowledge of how city government works. She will brainstorm with all the city departments to figure out what needs to be prioritized and get to work on it. There will be no long learning curve.

I find it disturbing that the only reason I hear to not vote for Jen is that she will be our former mayor's "mouthpiece." For those of you who have made that statement, you obviously don't know Jen.

She is as passionate about this city as anyone I have ever met. Safety, jobs, education and housing are all on the top of her to-do list and she wants to work with the citizens of the city to improve them all.

If you are on the fence about who to vote for, I urge you to talk to Jen, she welcomes any and all conversations. I also urge you to watch the 10/21/21 debate.

I support Jen Macksey and urge you to do the same, she will make this city proud.
