Allow Farley-Bouvier to keep doing good work

To the editor:

I have known Tricia Farley-Bouvier for over 30 years. I am proud to say that I was her first employer and recognized very early on that she was a talented, hard-working, caring and motivated individual.

I have watched her over the years with admiration as she has developed into an incredibly dedicated leader who has worked day in and day out to help our community. Her determination to improve and protect the lives of the Berkshires' citizens is a model for us all to follow.

From the time she was first elected to the Pittsfield City Council, Tricia has shown great determination to help her constituents. In the Legislature, she has worked tirelessly to support legislation that has enhanced the lives of children, families, the elderly and individuals with disabilities.

Whenever a crucial meeting takes place, whether in Pittsfield or Boston you can count on Tricia being part of the conversation. She has advocated for our region, and worked hard with her Berkshire delegation colleagues to bring funding to the Berkshires.

Whether it was for the cities and towns to support schools, cultural organizations to support the arts, the nonprofit agencies that serve so many of us or to improve our environment, Tricia has continued to lead the charge to improve lives. We are so fortunate that she is fighting for us in Boston and it is important that we show our appreciation and support. I urge you to vote in the September primary to make sure we return our passionate, dedicated state representative, Tricia Farley-Bouvier, to represent us in Boston.
