Hinds is an inspiring choice for state Senate
To the editor:
Western Massachusetts is at a critical moment. The path to the middle class that older generations could rely upon — a solid factory job with good benefits and a plan for retirement — is harder to come by now.
At the same time, we have incredible potential to bring the Berkshires into the future, but we must work together to be successful. Now is the time for a leader with vision and the background for bringing people together. That's why I'm supporting Adam Hinds for state Senate.
Adam worked on negotiations in the Middle East for 10 years; and decided to bring these skills back home to work with at-risk kids and to craft strategies to fight the heroin epidemic.
Adam's background isn't typical for state senators, and that is his strength. It is refreshing, given the disturbing national political scene, that we can choose a form of politics here that is positive and based on getting things done.
Join me in voting for Adam Hinds for state Senate on Nov. 8 if you believe politics can be inspiring.
