Letter: Put Penny on council
Precinct 5, please join me April 15 at the Grange to vote Penny Ricketts for councilor. I first met Penny when I served on the Board of Selectmen, since then I have known her to tirelessly volunteer in the community and on numerous boards serving Greenfield.
As taxpayers, we deserve a transparent council, not the backroom deals that we’ve seen of late. The current council has a my-way-or-the-highway attitude; this is not what is best for our community. Our council should be talking about important issues such as creating jobs, addressing the retail leakage and increasing the tax base. It is time to elect Penny!
Penny has a natural ability to listen to both sides of an issue with an open mind to make the best decisions for our city. Penny has always talked about the real issues facing our community and always takes action. Her knowledge and proven record leaves no doubt that she is the most qualified candidate for this position. Thank you for joining me in voting for Penny on April 15.
