To the editor of THE EAGLE:
Growing up in Pittsfield, I have been very fortunate to meet and develop many friendships. While raising my family here to being a small business owner, I have been able to learn many things about our community. I have known Donna Todd Rivers personally and professionally for over 20 years.
Donna has a diverse background of experience to bring to the at large City Council table here in Pittsfield. When I think of Donna, I think of a truly compassionate individual who puts the concerns and issues of others first.
Her background of experience, including practicing law, being a mortgage originator, working in City Hall, being a current downtown business owner and supporter of downtown Pittsfield, and local radio show host, give her a well-rounded perspective of Pittsfield’s current issues and concerns of our cities residents. Always wanting to build upon Pittsfield’s proud traditions and to strengthen those traditions, Donna will be a strong independent voice for Pittsfield, with the goal of working for the best for all our city’s citizens at the top of her list.
I ask that you join me in supporting and voting for Donna Todd Rivers for an at large seat on our City Council Nov. 5.
