Cindy Mahoney: Praise for city’s animal control officer
To the editor:
Nancy Graham is one of the many employees who work on behalf of the citizens of Northampton. In Nancy’s case, as animal control officer, her constituency also includes dogs, cats and wildlife.
Our two ridiculous mutts got loose today and thanks to her, they’re both home safe dreaming about their excellent adventure.
As we drove around looking for them, many folks said they’d keep an eye out, and we appreciate their assistance as well. I know we’re fortunate to live in a community where people work together to help each other out, even if, as in this case, it’s just to chase down a couple of biscuit hounds.
In this era of tough budgets and the impending override, I would ask all residents to be mindful of the city services you may not need every day, but when you do need them, their help is indispensable.
