Voting Day Pittsfield June 13th, 2017

Today is a voting day in Pittsfield, and while it may not have all the allure and intensity of November’s election, I feel it is important to vote.

I vote because I appreciate the teachers and staff who care for our children in our local schools and cast a vote to support their salaries and programs.  I vote because I appreciate that we have a publicly funded education system available to our children and my ballot adds to the voices of all those who value it. I vote because I would have been vocal in the suffragette movement, so in solidarity and gratitude, I vote today.
