Louis Franco: Urges vote for O’Donnell in Ward 3
To the editor:
I am writing to ask my Northampton Ward 3 neighbors to vote for Ryan O’Donnell to represent us on the City Council. I first met Ryan while volunteering for the Living Wage Coalition and got to know him better this year as our paths crossed on a variety of projects. One thing is clear if you know Ryan — he is dedicated to public service and works tirelessly in support of it. I am proud to have worked beside him.
These days it’s easy to blast government and think it isn’t good for anything (it can’t even stay open). However, people like Ryan are a good reminder of what’s possible if we elect good people.
If you live in Ward 3, he’s probably already knocked on your door, but if not, I would encourage readers to reach out to him and get to know him. If you do, I know that you’ll agree that Ryan is well worth your vote on Nov. 5.
