To the editor of THE EAGLE:
I have known Pamela Farron, candidate for Pittsfield School Committee, for a number of years. Pam’s background in education, and her perspective as a parent and taxpayer, make her uniquely suited to helping Pittsfield’s School Committee navigate the challenging times ahead.
Pam has strong leadership skills, speaks her mind clearly, and stands up for what she believes in. Pam understands fiscal responsibility, and how to prioritize needs when resources are slim.
Pam’s experience working with the diverse student body at Berkshire Community College has given her remarkable communication skills. One never leaves a conversation with Pam wondering if they have been heard and understood. Pam plays an active role in the BCC community, and knows how to build consensus on difficult issues so forward progress can be made.
The city of Pittsfield will be fortunate to have Pamela Farron serve on its School Committee.
