GREENFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – City Councilor Brickett Allis officially announced he’s running to be mayor of Greenfield Wednesday night.
Precinct 3 City Councilor Brickett Allis made it official when he spoke to area residents just outside Greenfield City Hall.
In his announcement, Brickett outlined his qualifications for mayor, saying his candidacy is “for the real working class of Greenfield.” He said his focus is on stabilizing taxation and public safety, bringing back good, high-paying jobs and economic development.
Born and raised in Greenfield, Allis has worked in city government since he was 19-years-old.
“The response has been wonderful, it was about a 15-minute announcement that I made, it was a speech that I had written and it really drilled down to the things that I believe the regular citizens of Greenfield are worried about at this time,” Allis told 22News.
Allis is the second candidate running in the race to succeed current Mayor William Martin who is not seeking re-election.
Planning Board Chairwoman Roxann Wedegartner announced her candidacy back in February.
