To the editor of THE EAGLE:
Pittsfield is in a fortunate position: there are many qualified people running for School Committee. Among them is Cynthia Taylor, for whom I urge people to vote.
As a former teacher in Pittsfield’s public school system, the parent of children who graduated from the Pittsfield Public Schools, and a resident of the city, Taylor understands the issues facing our teachers, our students, and our community in general. She thinks clearly, respects tradition while simultaneously embracing innovation, and (to use ‘’school language’’) works well with others.
Taylor’s agenda is clear: to advocate for Pittsfield Public Schools’ students and teachers, which, in my view, really is advocating for the future of our city. She has the background, skills, determination and integrity to work in harmony with other school board members as they foster what is best within our school community.
With your vote for Taylor on Nov. 5, you can make a positive difference in Pittsfield’s future. I urge you to vote for Cynthia Taylor.
