Farley-Bouvier has made case for re-election

To the editor:

There are many reasons why I support re-electing state Representative Tricia Farley-Bouvier to represent Pittsfield's 3rd District.

Tricia has an incredible ability to connect with people. Tricia is involved in many programs that support Pittsfield residents and neighborhoods. When she is not in Boston, Tricia meets with more groups than I could possibly mention to understand the needs of our families and neighbors. She is accessible and understands that collaboration is the key to successful representation in the state house.

Tricia has worked closely with administrators in the Pittsfield schools and at Berkshire Community College. Tricia has a solid understanding of the need for accessible education as a way to break the cycle of poverty. She has been endorsed by the United Educators of Pittsfield and the Mass Teachers Association in recognition of her support for public education.

Tricia is co-chair of the House Progressive Caucus, has been a leading advocate for renewable energy as well as for holding natural gas companies responsible for fixing leaking gas pipelines, and she has been endorsed by the Environmental League of Massachusetts and the Sierra Club for her actions.

Tricia has been a leader in the Gateway City Caucus, and was able to help secure one of a very few grants for a full time fellowship position focusing on Tyler Street redevelopment.

I am proud to call Tricia a friend and hope that you will join me in voting for Tricia Farley-Bouvier on Thursday, Sept 8 and again in the November general election.

Peter Sibner, Pittsfield
