Thank you for printing the Beacon Hill Roll Call in the May 1 Hampshire Gazette. This article on legislative actions in Boston during the week of April 22-26 shines a spotlight on the budget process, which deserves greater transparency and public understanding.

Many of us in the Pioneer Valley regularly contact our legislators in support of legislation, but we rarely get quick feedback on the fate of those bills. Were they voted on? How did our representatives and senators vote? This article provided answers.

The Northampton League of Women Voters encourages you to continue to make the Beacon Hill Roll Call a regular feature in the Hampshire Gazette. It is an effective tool for providing nonpartisan political information. It provides a voice for our newly elected legislators, who are all working hard to make our government more transparent.

Nancy Polan
