Richard K. Greene: Eugene Tacy is whole city’s fiscal watchdog
To the editor:
Northampton City Councilor Eugene Tacy deserves another term.
In his time on the council, he has earned the reputation as the lead fiscal watchdog. He looks out for people with lesser means who are sometimes hanging on by a thread, not just in Ward 7, but in the city as a whole.
Tacy is not afraid to touch the “third rail” in our city’s political landscape. He may ruffle some feathers and make some people angry, but it’s our tax dollars he’s looking out for. I think he has represented “all” of Ward 7 over his time on the council. As a lifelong resident and part of six generations from the Leeds section of Ward 7, I want Gene Tacy pitching for all of us out here.
