To the editor:
During my 20-year tenure as Amherst city treasurer, I had the opportunity and pleasure of working with John Dietrich.
For the first few years of my tenure, John was a councilman at-large and then he was elected to the council president position. John has always been a hands-on public servant, going that extra mile every time, all the time. If you watch city council meetings at all, you know that he is very knowledgeable about all the issues on the agenda because he doesn’t just assign the agenda requests, he researches them first.
His dedication to the city of Amherst and to the position of council president is the reason I ask you to join me on Nov. 7 and cast your ballot to re-elect John Dietrich Amherst council president.
