The Great Barrington Board of Selectmen will have at least one new member. However, current member Steve Bannon should be returned without hesitation.
Steve has been chairperson of the Berkshire Hills Regional School District since 1999. During that time he has demonstrated the ability to balance the educational needs of the district students and the community’s ability to pay.
In addition to his tireless devotion to his duties as a member of both the Board of Selectmen and the Berkshire Hills School Committee, he has served as a member of the Parks Commission as well as other town boards. He has served with me on the town Charter Review Committee and contributed valuable insights and suggestions to our discussions and final recommendations. His dedication to his community is unquestioned.
I believe that Steve’s leadership has earned the respect of his fellow citizens and everyone should feel comfortable with casting a vote for Steve Bannon for the Great Barrington Board of Selectmen.
