To the editor of THE EAGLE:
I was thrilled when I saw that Pam Farron is running for a seat on the Pittsfield School Committee. I've worked with Pam at Berkshire Community College for almost a decade. As director of the Disability Resource Center, she is an articulate and determined advocate for the students who often need the most help. As a teacher, I know that when I need advice about how to help a student, I can talk to Pam and get exactly the right
She is one of those rare people who gets straight to the heart of an issue and quickly devises a clear and sensible solution. Her one-on-one work with students has given her direct experience with the broad issues which impact student success, such as poverty. These experiences and skills will make her a valuable asset to the School Committee and to the city of Pittsfield.
Pam Farron has my enthusiastic vote on election day. CHRIS LANEY
