Connell is an ally for disabled citizens

To the editor:

As a disabled citizen who tries to live as independently as possible, it is very important to have heavily trafficked areas safe for all citizens.

The intersection in Pittsfield at Elm, East, and Fourth Street is filled with traffic coming from every direction and nearly impossible to navigate if you are confined to a wheelchair.

City Councilor Chris Connell, a candidate for state representative, has dedicated himself to making this intersection ADA compliant and safer for all. He has worked on this project and does not take no for an answer when it comes to fighting for our safety, and continues to look for ways to fund this project.

I have spoken with Chris a number of times and helping the disabled have better road conditions is very important to him. He will bring awareness to the state of our local needs for ADA compliance if he is elected to represent us in the commonwealth.

I am writing this letter to ask Pittsfield citizens who care about safe roads for disabled citizens to please consider voting for Chris Connell for state representative.

Ken Keefner, Pittsfield
