D.A. Candidates Set for Berkshire County Debate
The state primary election, which will likely decide who is Berkshire County's next District Attorney, is just around the corner and the candidates are in the final stretch of their campaign. Still undecided? There are a few opportunities for you to still get to know them, their platforms, and decide who will get your vote.
Over the next week, we'll have all three candidates appearing on the ballot on Slater and Marjo in the Morning, starting today with Judith Knight, continuing on Monday with incumbent Paul Caccaviello, and finishing on Wednesday with Andrea Harrington.
There are two chances to see the three candidates in action with live debates coming up at two Berkshire County locations. This Monday, August 20 at 7 p.m. the Pittsfield Gazette will be hosting a debate at Berkshire Community College, in the K111 theater. The debate will be moderated by former Pittsfield Mayor Sara Hathaway and is sponsored by Pittsfield Community Television, BCC and the Pittsfield Gazette. The debate can be viewed on PCTV Channel 1303, and streamed lived at pittsfieldtv.org
Tuesday August 28, from 1 to 2 p.m. all three candidates will again appear together at The Fitzpatrick Stage in Stockbridge, hosted by WAMC/Northeast Public Radio and Berkshire Theater Group. The debate will be moderated by WAMC’s Alan Chartock, WAMC’s Berkshire Bureau Chief Josh Landes and WAMC News Director Ian Pickus. The event is free and open to the public, however interested parties can call 413-997-4444 or visit berkshiretheatregroup.org to reserve their free tickets. The debate will be broadcast live on WAMC 90.3 FM and available for streaming at wamc.org.
