To the editor:

Yuki Cohen is running for councilor at large for the city of Pittsfield. If that does not make you a little bit excited, it should, especially if you care about our downtown as we do.

Most of you know that Yuki is the proprietor of a cool, hip bar and lounge named Methuselah on North Street. When we first heard that this bar was going to open, we were so excited to see someone else taking a chance, risking it all to invest in trying to revitalize North Street — another person who believed in this area of our city and took an empty, ugly space and turned it into a chic hangout that makes us proud to send visitors.

Now, she is running for office and her passion, dedication, intelligence, common sense and energy are what we need to keep moving forward. We urge all who do not know Yuki to meet her, talk to her, listen to her, and you will see what we mean.

There are those of us who have a vision of all this city can be, and we need to put people in office who are willing to do what is necessary to make this happen.

Laurie Tierney,
