Farley-Bouvier backs early childhood education
To the editor:
State Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier works hard for Berkshire County's children and families. She supports early childhood education, which is the best investment our state and country can make.
Tricia has established herself both locally and at the Statehouse as a leader in the fight to increase access to early childhood education and to raise the standards of the profession and the salaries of early childhood educators. She was successful in her efforts to increase early childhood teachers' salaries but the governor later vetoed them.
In addition to fighting for early childhood education, Tricia was a strong advocate for paid sick leave, which is now law in Massachusetts. Now, along with her colleagues, Tricia is working on paid family leave. She knows that families are their strongest when parents can take time to care for their children without fear of losing their job.
Our children need someone who will fight for their future. Our children need Tricia Farley Bouvier.
