To the editor of THE EAGLE:
I am writing this letter to ask the citizens of Pittsfield to vote for Donna Todd Rivers for city councilor at large on Nov. 5.
She chose to run for councilor at large because she feels she can help the city as a whole and not just one part of it. Donna is an honest, genuine, caring person who has the ability to listen to your concerns, ideas and opinions, then do research in order to get answers for the betterment of the community. She is a business owner who knows how to manage a company in this trying economy, how to handle finances, how to work with people and their ideas, as well as do everyday family obligations.
She is very community-oriented even if not campaigning. On any given day you can find her helping in the kitchen at a pancake breakfast, or at the Berkshire Immigrant Day, to walking in the "Walk a Mile In Her Shoes" awareness parade.
Donna is a great friend and a businesswoman who will respect and listen to people! She is the right person who will focus on public safety, education, fiscal integrity and economic development, all the issues that we are concerned about. If you care about Pittsfield, vote for Donna Todd Rivers, who also cares as much as you do!!
