Berkshire DA Announces Campaign To Remain In Seat
Berkshire District Attorney Paul Caccaviello currently holds his seat as an unelected appointee. A 28-year veteran of state prosecution, the Pittsfield Democrat was appointed by Republican Governor Charlie Baker to fill the term of David Capeless, who retired abruptly after 14 years. Caccaviello was sworn in on March 15th amidst charges that the appointment was a means to give him a leg up in the fall election. Within a week, a fellow Democrat — Great Barrington Attorney Andrea Harrington — announced plans to primary Caccaviello September 4th. Caccaviello kicked off his campaign this afternoon. Here is his full interview with WAMC News.
