As Massachusetts Democratic State Senator Adam Hinds comes to the end of his first term representing the Berkshire, Hampshire, Franklin and Hampden district, he’ll face a primary opponent from Lee Selectman Thomas Wickham. Wickham is a self-employed carpenter who’s served on the Lee select board for five years. Wickham has spent more than a decade on the Lee planning board in a variety of roles, including chair, and he’s also been the chair of the energy committee for six years. Wickham has been a delegate to the Berkshire Regional Planning Commission. He spoke to WAMC about his plans to challenge Hinds September 4th.
