Farley-Bouvier listens, works hard for community

To the editor:

Over the last six years, we have had the opportunity to observe the exemplary work Tricia Farley-Bouvier has done on behalf of Pittsfield residents, both in her role as our state representative and as the public affairs coordinator for the mayor's office. Without exception, she has always made an extraordinary effort to listen to the concerns of her constituents and work with them to identify and develop effective solutions to address their challenges.

She possesses an inclusive and collaborative leadership style, which makes her ideally suited for serving as a representative of a community with a diverse range of interests and concerns. Without fanfare, she has worked to garner a better understanding of the underlying economic needs of our community and to create greater opportunities for educational attainment, living wage employment, and stable, decent housing.

Her substantive and deliberative style may not be flashy enough for some, but it has proven to be tremendously effective. It is our hope that you will join us in supporting Tricia Farley-Bouvier for state representative in the upcoming election.

Brad and Kristen Gordon, Pittsfield
