To the editor of THE EAGLE:
An article concerning Christine Yon’s campaign signs was recently on the front page of The Berkshire Eagle. Later, she was on the radio. It appears that Councilor Yon and the news media believe the No. 1 issue facing Ward 1 this election season is the disappearance of Councilor Yon’s campaign signs.
As a senior and voter in Ward 1, my two main issues are the ever-increasing property taxes and PEDA’s willingness to entertain retail on the former GE industrial site, outside the scope of its original mission. PEDA needs to market this site for industry as intended. With new industry on this site, it will not only increase our tax base but hopefully reduce the tax burden on seniors and all taxpayers alike.
Ward 1 finally has a candidate for councilor who is fully aware of the issues and will fight to keep taxes in check. Lisa Tully gets my vote.
