SOUTH HADLEY – Andrea Miles announce earlier this week that she is certified to run for re-election to the South Hadley Selectboard. The Town election will be held on March 3, 2020, and will coincide with the Presidential Primary.
Miles, the chair of the Board, was first elected to the Board in 2017, and is now seeking a second term. She has pre- viously served as the Board’s clerk and vice chair before taking on the role of chair last spring.
“It has been a privilege to serve South Hadley in this capacity for the past three years and I look forward to the changes and challenges ahead for the town. Hiring a new town administrator, re-envisioning our solid waste program, constructing the new Senior Center, and planning a fiscally responsible vision for the town moving forward requires a Selectboard that functions with strong leadership and cooperation, and I believe my strengths continue to fit well into this picture.”
Miles was born and raised in Belchertown, and graduated in 2005 from Cornell University with a BS in Development Sociology. She and her husband have five children, including two graduates of South Hadley High School, and three younger children at Mosier and Michael E. Smith.

In a letter to the editor from John Camp of South Hadley, Andrea Miles and Sarah Etelman were hailed as taxpayer heroes for their vote to close the struggling Ledges Golf Course.
The course has never made money (taxpayers have covered above $8.5 million losses since the course opened) and the requests to operate the course by a professional business still would require the Town to cover yearly deficits. These two heroes wanted to end the bleeding of the tax payers’ money.
