To the Editor:

I am writing to endorse Holly Hamer for the Great Barrington Town Planning Board. For many years now, whenever I have encountered Holly on neighborhood walks I have asked her for more information about town issues than was available through local media. She has always responded with knowledgeable insight. Holly has been a committed and caring member of this community for decades, both as a businesswoman and as an active participant in town affairs, including serving as a library trustee. She has a balanced approach to development that reflects Great Barrington’s Master Plan vision of encouraging prosperity while preserving our quality of life. Holly will be an astute and diligent member of the Planning Board whose service to the town will be an asset.
