Greene for Greenfield

During the recent Stop and Shop strike, members of the United Food and Commercial Workers had to stick together for one of the longest strikes in recent memory. Their shop steward was Taunette Greene, who is now running for a City Council seat in Precinct 3. Taunette helped to keep her members motivated, and was out on the picket every day of the strike, fighting for the wages and benefits of her co-workers.

This is the kind of strength and values I think belongs on our City Council.

Taunette is a native of Greenfield. Her family have been hard working members of our community for decades. Taunette has a good sense of what her neighbors expect from local government, and she will always give her time to hear people out, and she is a great negotiator — a skill she will need on the City Council.

On Nov. 5, I am voting “Greene for Greenfield” in Precinct 3.
