Letter: Backing McMillan

Friday, October 2, 2015

I strongly support Jesse McMillan as a candidate for Greenfield School Committee. This energetic young professional is a graduate of the Greenfield school system and is now a public school teacher in Pittsfield. Even when he was a young teen, Jesse showed obvious potential and a willingness to commit enormous amounts of energy and time to worthwhile town projects. I first met and worked with him when he volunteered at … 0

Letter: Stop Kinder Morgan

Thursday, October 1, 2015

It was so good to see a seventh-grader voice his opinion about the pipeline. We have to get more teens interested in this topic because they are the ones who will be raising their families here. They have to understand that if the pipeline does go through the health of future generations are at risk from illness, air and water pollution, soil erosion … 0

Letter: She ‘gets it’

Thursday, October 1, 2015

Having met and spoken with Patty Morey Walker, I have had the opportunity to ask tough questions of this candidate. Particular emphasis was put on the financial responsibilities placed upon all taxpayers in Greenfield by the current administration and her plans to end its out-of-control spending. Candidate Morey Walker has been quite direct and to the point in her responses. As a former … 0

Letter: Our investments

Thursday, October 1, 2015

To whom it may concern: We the people of Greenfield want the town to look nice, but we seem to forget to look at the sidewalks on Bank Row by Magpie that is all broken up and a person could easily fall on. The sidewalk on Main Street … 0

Letter: Our diverse community

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

Dear Ms. Johnson — You do not speak accurately! First off, I live in Town of Montague, Village of Turners Falls and I would prefer you not put words into the mouths of the community. You did not do any homework before making such a large accusation. In … 0

Letter: Behind these ‘taxpayers’

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

One of the things I like about The Recorder is the paper’s willingness to publish a variety of views on the editorial page. So I don’t object to the publication of the column “Solyndra lessons ignored” by David Williams, president of the Taxpayers Protection Alliance (TPA). That column … 3

Letter: Knowing the candidates

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

Chris Collins’ article, “In The Arena,” published on Friday, Sept. 25 hit the nail on the head as they say. I believe that as candidates, we have a duty to engage with the public and educate them about our values and priorities as citizens so that they can … 0

Letter: A hit piece

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

To quote Saint Reagan, “There you go again!” The Recorder veered hard right once more with “Solyndra Lessons Ignored” from the Sept. 26 editorial page. The author, president of the nonpartisan sounding Taxpayers Protection Alliance, part of the Koch political network, and funded by Koch-connected Americans for Job … 0

Letter: Black History month

Wednesday, September 30, 2015

Regarding the letter of Sept. 23 by Alice Johnston To say that the Town of Montague did nothing for Black History month is simply not true. I was asked by Turners Falls RiverCulture director Suzanne Lomanto to install exhibits in two of the “gallery windows” in downtown Turners … 0

Letter: Different views on life?

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

The front page tragic story, Monday, Sept. 21, about Baby Bella’s death is horrifying as she was killed because she was thought to be “a child of Satan.” But as John Bos reminds us in his column in the same issue “Our state of war” that half a … 0

Letter: Put Nunez back on board

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

I have worked with Adrienne Nunez on the Greenfield School Committee for the past year. In this past year, I have come to realize that Adrienne is an excellent School Committee member and the students and taxpayers of Greenfield would benefit from electing Adrienne to serve another term. … 0

Letter: Two for Town Council

Tuesday, September 29, 2015

I am writing to show my support and to urge Greenfield citizens to vote for two people who I think would make great at-large councilors: Penny Ricketts and Nathaniel (Natty) Hussey. Penny, as many of you probably already know, is a dynamic force of nature who campaigns tirelessly … 0

Letter: A decision maker

Monday, September 28, 2015

Finding out what has happened elsewhere may make a difference as to what people can expect to see here with the idea of putting that pipeline through upper-Massachusetts. It’s no wonder we hear so many stories about folks in Texas being out of touch with even their own … 0
