I had the pleasure of working with Jody Phillips when she was the Pittsfield city clerk. Her managerial skills are unquestionable. Her dedication to public service is unprecedented.

Her compassion for others and their individual plights is amazing. Her ability to juggle multiple projects while staying under budget is remarkable.

Anyone who thinks the position of Register of Deeds is a political stepping stone for her is completely off base. She is looking forward to a long and healthy career serving the citizens of the Berkshire Middle District.

I hope you’ll join me in electing Jody Phillips as our next Berkshire Middle Register of Deeds on Sept. 6.
