Fending Off Criticism, Pittsfield Councilor Connell Points To Accomplishments

Chris Connell has represented Ward 4 on the Pittsfield, Massachusetts city council for almost eight years. As he sets his sights on a fifth term in this fall’s municipal election, Connell faces challenger Mike Merriam, who criticized the incumbent in an interview with WAMC last week. Connell sat down with WAMC to tout his tenure, and responded to claims that he deliberately refuses to work with others on the council.
