To the editor of THE EAGLE:

On May 5, the voters of Adams will go to the polls to elect a new tax collector. There will be no transition period, no learning curve and no on the job training. Adams need a hard-working person with experience, poise and determination to do the best for the town. Melissa McGovern-Wandrei is that person.

Melissa McGovern-Wandrei has 15 years experience as the tax collector in Clarksburg. She is Massachusetts-certified as treasurer and collector, both necessary qualifications for the job of tax collector. Melissa is currently the president of the Berkshire County Treasurer and Collectors Association.

Melissa McGovern-Wandrei is the most qualified candidate for tax collector. I will feel confident when I vote for Melissa. Vote Melissa McGovern-Wandrei for tax collector on May 5.
