To the editor of THE EAGLE:
As a person who has followed many campaigns I must say it is refreshing to see a candidate that is true to self and who doesn’t need a pat on the back and is someone who is working hard for the citizens of Pittsfield.
Donna Todd Rivers is that candidate and is a candidate who is listening to the people. She places strong emphasis on safety first in the city and strives to bring city government to a new level of collaboration in order to look at new strategies to move Pittsfield forward.
She has met with neighborhoods and businesses, polled citizens from her website, taken suggestions from Facebook friends and sat at countless city meetings to know every side of what the citizens of Pittsfield need.
She is smart, articulate, approachable and personable. She listens, takes action when needed and is the truest sense of a leader. That is why I am voting for Donna Todd Rivers.
If you, as a citizen of Pittsfield, are looking for a candidate that is willing to listen, do the homework on the issues and take action may I suggest that you vote Donna Todd Rivers.
If you are looking for a candidate that is willing to sit with her colleagues and put aside differences and do the peoples work then please vote for Donna Todd Rivers.
Lastly, if you are looking for a candidate to believe in, to count on and to know can make a difference in the community then please vote for Donna Todd Rivers, councilor at large, on Nov. 5 and you will finally have what you’ve been looking for.
