Speranzo Looks Ahead to Issues on Beacon Hill After Election

By John Krol

Pittsfield, MA – The former Solicitor for the City of Pittsfield, Christopher Speranzo, easily defeated Republican Terry Kinnas in a special election to represent the third Berkshire District on Beacon Hill. Speranzo replaces long-time Pittsfield Representative Peter Larkin, who stepped down soon after his November re-election to become a lobbyist.
