Once again, change appears to be on the horizon for the Berkshire District Attorney’s office. Attorney Andrea Harrington, of Richmond, Massachusetts, upset sitting District Attorney Paul Caccaviello and warded off Judith Knight to win the Democratic primary last Tuesday. With no Republican candidate running in November’s election, Harrington is poised to become the first woman to hold the seat. She sat down with WAMC to talk about her victory, the possibility of a fall campaign, and the future of the office.

Josh Landes has been WAMC's Berkshire Bureau Chief since February 2018, following stints at WBGO Newark and WFMU East Orange. A passionate advocate for Western Massachusetts, Landes was raised in Pittsfield and attended Hampshire College in Amherst, receiving his bachelor's in Ethnomusicology and Radio Production. His free time is spent with his cat Harry, experimental electronic music, and exploring the woods.
