To the editor of THE EAGLE:
As a business owner and home owner, I give my full support to Christine Yon as a representative of Pittsfield’s Ward 1.
I have followed many City Council meetings and she is genuine in her positions. There is no "good old boy" influence, and she truly listens to the people in her ward.
She has accomplished many things, so I will mention just a few. As an owner of a business on Tyler Street, she has gone over and above in helping make this street and neighborhood a place to be proud of. She is a pro-active person who is responsible for the Halloween parade and many other events that have taken place there.
She has been attentive with me and my neighbors, addressing our concerns. Specifically, we had some safety issues with trees along the street and she made sure they were cut down and trimmed.
If you want someone who is dedicated to their position as a representative of a ward, vote for Christine Yon for Ward 1 councilor in the Sept. 24 city primary election.
