MASSACHUSETTS DEMOCRATS CELEBRATE BARRETT PRIMARY WIN
BOSTON – Massachusetts Democratic Party Chair Gus Bickford released the following statement in response to today’s primary special election for the First Berkshire State House district:
“John Barrett will be a bold, progressive voice for the working families and residents of the First Berkshire district and will continue to build upon the work the late Representative Gailanne Cariddi, including increasing access to broadband and investing in programs to support and sustain local industries.
“The people of Adams, Cheshire, Clarksburg, Florida, Hancock, Lanesborough, New Ashford, North Adams, and Williamstown were lucky to have many strong, progressive Democrats committed to the district and running in this special election.
“We commend all who ran and look forward to coming together to support John in the general election to ensure residents have a strong leader in the House.”
