To the editor:

I’ve known Stacy Ames for 30 years — she’s smart, honest, open, hard-working, and a great listener. With Stacy, Ward 3 residents will get a leader, not a follower. She’ll make smart decisions on growth, development, traffic, schools, taxes and more that will invigorate Beverly and keep it affordable. Stacy is also someone who listens to everyone and weighs all sides of an issue. This means that the work she does and the decisions she makes as our councilor will be guided by what is best for the neighborhoods that make up Ward 3.

While she has been involved and active for many years, this is the first time Stacy has run for office — she’ll be an independent voice, and will bring new ideas to City Hall. I’m proud to endorse her, and to call her a good friend!
