Farley-Bouvier strong on environmental issues
To the editor:
We are writing to urge voters in Pittsfield to support the re-election of state Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier, who is running for re-election in the Democratic primary on Thursday, Sept. 8.
We are proud to support Rep. Farley-Bouvier due to her steadfast leadership on environmental issues in the Legislature and her tireless work on behalf of the people of Pittsfield. She understands the importance of our state investing in clean energy, sustainable transportation, and parks to help address climate change, create jobs, and build healthier communities.
This past session, she has been a leader on legislation to prevent ratepayers from subsidizing unnecessary gas pipelines and addressing the issue of gas leaks. She has also been working to create jobs and has secured new state investments in the regional economy that will encourage new companies to locate in Pittsfield.
With critical environmental issues confronting the Legislature this next session, we ask you to please support a real environmental champion this fall.
