To the editor of THE EAGLE:
We are writing to enthusiastically endorse John Krol for re-election as Pittsfield’s Ward 6 city councilor.
John works tirelessly to support our community on many levels, and his unwavering commitment to Pittsfield Public Schools is particularly commendable. As elementary school teachers and parents of a toddler, the quality of public education is especially important to us. John has a unique understanding of the delicate balance between property value, taxes, school budget, and school choice, and the way these issues affect the future of this community.
I believe John’s dedication as city councilor will bring about the kind of change that can positively affect the quality of our public schools. We are lucky to have an advocate for west Pittsfield with such keen intelligence, youthful energy, and dedication to the improvement of our community.
By protecting the quality of life in Ward 6 and ardently supporting our schools, John Krol has unquestionably earned our vote on Nov. 5.
