Hello friends, I want to update you on what has been happening this past month...
I want to update you on what has been happening this past month, and what you can look forward to. Honestly, it has been such a busy summer! From marching in the 4th of July Parade to celebrating Pride, I feel honored to be a part of this community.
I also attended the 46th annual Gather-In Festival, hosted by the NAACP and participated in Day of Action hosted by world renowned cellist Yo-Yo Ma on the Commons. Each weekend is filled with fun, community-building events and activities, and I am proud to call Pittsfield my home.
In other news, my campaign team and I have been busy planning events, door-knocking and engaging voters. We love hearing from you about your concerns and your hopes for how to move Pittsfield forward. We have some important dates coming up, so make sure you mark it in your calendar.
