Here it is, folks! Campaign season is officially over. I've knocked on my last door and dialed my last phone number. Tomorrow we vote!
This has been such a rewarding experience! I'm humbled by the hard work my team has put into this campaign and their dedication to our community. I met people I never would have met and learned things about their day-to-day lives that I never would have learned. I even made some new friends. 💕
Please go out and vote tomorrow. And stop by the People's Pint after the polls close as we raise out glasses to Greenfield! ...
If you want to swing by and hang out with me at my table I would LOVE to see you, but please consider car pooling or parking a little further away so voters can get in and out quickly.We respectfully ask that all election workers, campaign workers or any person(s) that intend to have an extended stay in the area of the Greenfield Polls next Tuesday to either car pool and/or park their vehicles on side streets, such as Summer, Vernon, Davis and Cleveland St’s, instead of the high school parking lots.
We anticipate a large percentage of the Greenfield population to vote and the area nearest the polls to be congested. We would like to keep the school parking lots available for voters, including persons with limited mobility, intending to park only for a short term.
Please do not park in area private parking lots, residents’ driveways or the west side of the High School parking lot closest to the Football field, as that lot will be used for high school employees. ...
Thank you very much for your support, Devorah!

“WHEN SHEILA IS ELECTED.
I moved to Greenfield 15 years ago.I love so many things about our city: driving for Meals on Wheels, dancing, our co-op, YMCA, the beauty of nature, the opportunity to make a difference.
I am constantly telling my friends from Boston and places further to move here. They always ask me the same questions: What are the schools like? How is your library? What is there to do? Is Greenfield growing affordable housing? What is the business and professional climate? Are there unions? Is there good public transportation? Is the community friendly to minorities and immigrants?
I talk with pride of the multiple worker-owned cooperative businesses in town and about the amazing work of the Franklin Community Development Corp. I glow about our amazing arts scene that is growing, and the mecca of contra dancing in the US at the Guiding Star Grange. I point out many houses and businesses with solar arrays. I tell stories of our great police and fire departments. However... those important questions, I'm not so proud of the answers,
When Sheila Gilmour is elected, I will be able to answer peoples important questions positively. Sheila is a fierce proponent of education and a longtime union member, and with her experience and understanding she can help our schools be something of which we are proud. Sheila takes the needs of ALL PEOPLE, young and old, rich or poor, abled or challenged, LGBTQ or heterosexual/cisgendered, and she will fight for what is right. Sheila's vision includes green and affordable housing and businesses that are in keeping with a vibrant economy and a progressive agenda. As a supporter of our new library and the Safe City designation, Sheila Gilmour will embrace and empower the values that will allow Greenfield to grow into a healthy and sustainable future.” ...
