Letter: We need Cornwell
Northfield is at a crossroads, requiring a recognition of the need for economic development and positive, proactive governance. I write on behalf of Diane Cornwell, candidate for Selectboard. Diane is a principled, dedicated and collaborative individual with extensive experience in local, state and federal government. Her encyclopedic knowledge of Massachusetts municipal laws, policies and resources will enable her to hit the ground running at a critical point in the town’s history. Diane understands that meeting the challenges of the future will require the coordinated efforts of empowered groups of citizens — all hands on deck, not just a captain. She will bring transparency, an open mind and sense of team work that the board needs. In addition to that, women hold up half the sky; shouldn’t we benefit from the abilities of a competent, positive and energetic woman?
