By Andy McKeever, iBerkshires Staff
09:30PM / Monday, September 25, 2017

Park Square was lined with people opposing the new federal health care proposal. PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Republicans are attempting to once again repeal and replace the ACA with a new health care program.    The so-called Graham-Cassidy bill, sponsored by Republicans Bill Cassidy and Lindsey Graham, is the latest attempt at a new federal health care program.   Republicans spent much of the weekend attempting to round up the votes needed to pass, but the bill is looking to fall short -- with three Republicans already indicating they will leave the bill short on votes.   But that didn't stop a few dozen local Democrats from taking to Park Square in protest

Letter: Stephanie Bosley Best Person for Representative
Letters to the Editor,
07:00PM / Monday, September 25, 2017

To the Editor:

The election for state representative for the 1st Berkshire District hasn't received much press, but it is an important election to replace Gail Cariddi. The Berkshires have many needs and we need someone who will go to Boston and work with the other members to make sure we get our fair share. I think the best person for this job is Stephanie Bosley. She has been talking about her political and work experience and how that has shaped her ideas as well as her commitment to this area in a way that is refreshing and different.

At one of the forums that the candidates have attended, I heard a couple of supporters of another candidate talk about Stephanie's age and lack

Letter: Bullett Endorses Blackmer for State Representative
Letters to the Editor,
07:00PM / Monday, September 25, 2017

To the Editor:

I served with Lisa Blackmer for almost six years on the North Adams City Council. In that capacity I had the opportunity to witness first hand her commitment to municipal government and the hard work that goes on behind the scenes to make government work.

She was an active member of the Finance Committee, the Community Development Committee, and others. She currently she serves as a board member of the Massachusetts Municipal Association. Lisa always showed up for community events and fundraisers, and she was a good colleague.
 
I believe Lisa will be a zealous advocate for the needs of the communities that comprise the 1st Berkshire District. She will be able to work
