Barbara Kellogg and Pam Youngquist are members of Citizens Concerned About GB Horse Racing. We are citizen’s rights advocates, animal advocates, safety advocates, environmental advocates, and anti-addiction advocates. Like the other countless concerned citizens in Great Barrington, the Berkshires and the state of Massachusetts, we felt it our moral duty to advocate on these issues as they each became apparent in the proposal for commercial horse racing at the GB fairgrounds. All of us, the concerned citizens, have worked tirelessly together for months to thoroughly research and consult about the multi layered proposal of horse racing, culminating in GB voters declaring their demand to vote yes on the Home Rule Petition regarding the question of horse racing in GB.
