Richard Parr: Supports Elkins for at-large council position

Published: 9/24/2021 9:32:45 AM

I met Marissa Elkins volunteering for the last year’s successful override campaign, which she led.

I’ve gotten to know her since, and my first impressions have been confirmed: She is a strong leader, confident in her beliefs but also willing to accept the best ideas from others. Her work on the Planning Board has put her in the middle of contentious but necessary changes to combat and prepare for climate change, and to make Northampton a more diverse and inclusive community.

She would be a great addition to the City Council, and I am excited to vote for her in the preliminary election.
