Six Months In, Successes And Challenges For Berkshire DA Harrington

Berkshire DA Andrea Harrington

Berkshire County District Attorney Andrea Harrington won a contentious 2018 election on a reform ticket, promising the community a new prosecutorial approach predicated on social justice, transparency, and greater outreach. Six months into the job, Harrington sat down with WAMC to talk about her recent trip to Portugal with a progressive district attorney group called Fair and Just Prosecution. She also addressed changes to her office’s community outreach program, the difficulties of implementing a data-based system, her experience handling a quadruple murder-suicide in Sheffield, and much more.

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.
