Pittsfield Mayor Reflects On Tough Berkshire Campaign Season
The contentious battle for Berkshire district attorney exposed some political fault lines leading up to last week’s election. The first local leader to make a stand in the Democratic primary was Pittsfield Mayor Linda Tyer. Tyer endorsed Andrea Harrington over DA Paul Caccaviello in late August. On Tuesday, Harrington defeated Caccaviello, who mounted a write-in campaign in the general election. WAMC spoke with Tyer about her decision to endorse, and what comes next in Berkshires politics after the bruising election.
