WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Keep Springfield Beautiful President Melvin Edwards.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home.
