My wife, Holly, and I have been very fortunate to live in Great Barrington for 33 years. It is a wonderful town that has been blessed with many exceptional community leaders and volunteers. Steve Bannon ranks up there with the best of them.

As the long-serving chairman of the Berkshire Hills Regional School District and now as a Selectman, Steve has demonstrated strong leadership skills as well as an understanding of the needs of our economically diverse community. He has served as a coach for our youth, as a longtime active member of the Rotary Club, and as a member of numerous other local boards. His quiet, determined and sensible approach to solving problems has been well demonstrated.

During this time of transition to a new town manager and with the many other challenges that we face in Great Barrington, Steve is the right person at the right time. I strongly support his reelection and urge you to do so as well.
