In the past few weeks you’ve hopefully heard a lot about State Rep candidate Tricia Farley-Bouvier. A long-time educator and two term Pittsfield City council member Tricia, captured the Democratic nomination this September and moves on to the general election this October 18th.
A progressive in both deeds and words, Tricia became involved in Pittsfield politics in 2002 when she worked with the “Save Our Schools” campaign, a grassroots movement that sought to support funding for Pittsfield’s schools. Later, in 2003 and 2005, she became a highly rated candidate for City Council. As a City Council Tricia has been helped shape downtown Pittfield’s renaissance, supporting the refurbishment of local historical buildings and encouraging more business development in the area.
Next month Tricia will be facing off against Republican candidate Miller Jester and independent candidate Pam Malumphy in the general election. The 3rd Berkshire district needs Tricia’s vision, and she needs our help to win. Please take the time to volunteer for Tricia by either canvassing or making phone calls on her behalf.
Some of you have already begun organizing. Students from Smith College, University of Massachusetts Amherst, and Williams College are heading to the 3rd Berkshire district to canvass this Saturday from 11-3:30pm.
If you’re interested in volunteering with the campaign please email firstname.lastname@example.org or if you’re interested in attending the canvas the Western MA canvas this Saturday please email email@example.com.
