I am writing in support of Jody Phillips for register of deeds. As someone who has needed to access public offices, I have to say that going to the Pittsfield City Clerk's office while Jody was city clerk was a pleasure. How often do we say that about going to a government office for help? But Jody was great, her staff was great, and their ability to answer questions and be so helpful was why I never hesitated to into the clerk's office of give them a call if I needed something.
Is Jody qualified to be register and to manage that office -- absolutely. It's not only her qualifications that make her stand out though. It is Jody's integrity, her work ethic, and her ability to both lead and be part of a team.
Thank you for your service to Pittsfield, Jody, and we hope to see you back working on our behalf as the next Register of Deeds.
