Pignatelli Gives Update On Great Barrington Home Rule Bid

Feb 5, 2020

Smitty Pignatelli is the Democratic State Representative for the 4th Berkshire District in Massachusetts. With State Senator and fellow Democrat Adam Hinds, Pignatelli is the co-presenter of a bill that would put Great Barrington’s December town vote for home rule into law. The Southern Berkshire community of around 7,000 is seeking the legal confirmation to ensure that it will have the final word on whether horse racing returns to the Great Barrington Fairgrounds for the first time in two decades, which Suffolk Downs is exploring. Pignatelli spoke with WAMC Tuesday.
