With election day a week away, the two candidates for mayor of North Adams had their final debate Monday night at the Massachusetts College of Liberal Arts. 

Political newcomer Tom Bernard and current City Councilor Bob Moulton Jr. are vying to become the next mayor of Massachusetts’ smallest city.

Bernard wants to make the city more attractive and affordable for families – and says the school system is a good place to start.

“I think that we can talk about places to do more but we have to start by acknowledging the things that our anchor institutions already do,” Bernard says.

Moulton says he is tough on crime, and wants to chip away at rising property taxes.

“North Adams can have whatever they want to pay for,” Moulton says.

The non-partisan election to replace retiring Mayor Richard Alcombright is November 7th.
