On November 5th, voters in Pittsfield, Massachusetts stuck with incumbent Linda Tyer in a hotly contested mayoral election. Tyer served the city’s first four-year mayoral term after her election in 2015, but finished second in the September preliminary election. In the general, she took 52% at the polls against at-large city councilor Melissa Mazzeo’s 48%. Sitting down with WAMC at city hall, Tyer reflected on the campaign and her plans for the next term.

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.
