02:38AM / Thursday, April 08, 2021
WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Ask Jeffrey Johnson for his campaign's "elevator pitch," and you had better hope that lift is taking you on a ride in a skyscraper.   Johnson, a lifelong resident of the town, has an ambitious agenda for town government and boundless energy to talk about his priorities.   But at his core, Johnson wants to do what he can to heal the wounds that have divided the town over the last year.   "Our hearts are hurting," Johnson said.

WILLIAMSTOWN, Mass. — Members of the town's racial equity committee Monday emphasized that calls for accountability in the town's police department are not attacks on the town's police officers.   Rather, they said it is an effort to support law enforcement officers.   "I feel like what we have all been trying to work toward here is that police officers who are not doing all of these things we've been shocked and dismayed and violated by are supported," Aruna D'Souza said.
