Farley-Bouvier on team that has boosted Pittsfield

To the editor:

Before Tricia Farley-Bouvier first served as an at-large councilor on the City Council, there was little or no growth in downtown Pittsfield. Our downtown wasn't a destination. Since then, Pittsfield has been experiencing a revitalization that would be the envy of any small city. We now have the Colonial Theatre, the Beacon Cinema, Barrington Stage Company, a downtown farmers market, and a new high school under construction.

The process of bringing each of these projects to Pittsfield required long hours and years-long collaboration. In each case, Tricia was a part of the leadership team that navigated the many obstacles that could have sidelined any one of these projects.

When it comes to state representative, we need someone who has demonstrated the ability to work with others to get the job done. We need someone who is here and has been here for the long haul and has invested time helping our community.

We need Tricia. Please join me in voting for Tricia Farley-Bouvier on Thursday, Sept. 8.
