Letter: Why I Support Paul Mark

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

I've known Paul Mark all his political life, and we couldn't ask for a better person to be our next state senator in Boston. Paul is an experienced and practical progressive who will hit the ground running in the state Senate.

In 2010, Paul was elected to the Massachusetts House of Representatives to serve the 2nd Berkshire district. And ever since, he has fought for working families, calling for Medicare-for-all, higher-education funding reform, student debt relief, funding for vocational programs, and major transformative solutions to the climate crisis, among other issues.

Yes, Paul knows what it means to work. He came from humble circumstances to earn associate, bachelor, master and doctoral degrees, and finally a law degree. He was able to do it because union benefits made it possible, and he wants others to have the same opportunities. That's why he fights for good-paying jobs in our communities and access to affordable transportation and high-speed broadband internet for all our communities.

Western Mass. needs experienced representation in Boston. I've already mailed my ballot for Paul Mark. I hope you'll soon do the same.

Lee Harrison
Williamstown, Mass.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — The town's diversity committee Monday talked about plans for conversations it wants to hold over the next few months while members pushed back against a suggestion that the body "conclude or pause" its work in order to focus on a yearlong effort to create a strategic plan.
 
The Diversity, Inclusion and Racial Equity Committee has been engaged with the Select Board throughout the summer in a discussion of the purpose and direction for the advisory panel the Select Board created two years ago.
 
That discussion has not always gone smoothly.
 
Earlier this month, the Select Board agreed on a draft outline for the purpose and process that could guide the DIRE Committee in its third year of existence.
