To the editor of THE EAGLE:
The city of Pittsfield needs patience. Another retail development at the William Stanley Business Park is just rotating cheap jobs, not creating jobs. It will also kill the Berkshire Mall.
Pittsfield needs to wait for advanced manufacturing companies for real jobs so people and families can move in from another state, not just drive out of Pittsfield. We have enough jobs here paying $8-$10 an hour, along with lots of vacant retail stores.
Please look around and listen. This is not enough a plan worth discussing.
