To the editor of THE EAGLE:
As a former Ward 1 Pittsfield city councilor, I understand the challenges and commitment involved in representing residents on a daily basis. The work of ward councilors is not glamorous and much of it is unseen. Christine Yon has proven to be a work horse, not a show horse. She has demonstrated to me her capability and strong desire to work tirelessly on behalf of the residents of Ward 1. She comes to the council meetings prepared and uses thoughtful deliberation as she addresses each agenda item at council meetings.
Ward 1 has a choice. Let’s continue to have a councilor who has passion, integrity and a strong sense of community. So please join me in re-electing Christine Yon in Ward 1.
