Letter: Return proven Stockbridge planner


To the editor:

As a part-time and now full-time resident of Stockbridge for many years, I am writing in support of the candidacy of Stuart Hirshfield for a renewed seat on the Stockbridge Planning Board.

The town is fortunate to have this wise and level-headed attorney, who is eager to address the zoning bylaws of Stockbridge in a manner that will emphasize clarity and consistency. Hirshfield, an accomplished retired lawyer, mediator, and negotiator for many years, has already demonstrated as an appointed member of the Stockbridge Planning Board that his participation is a benefit to the town's residents.

While he does not want to disrupt the valuable assets, such as neighborhoods and natural resources of the town, he encourages sensible and orderly growth. He will have my vote, and I wish him continued success.

Matthew B. Mandel, M.D.,
