ALFORD, Mass. — Alford writer and congressional candidate Bill Shein has challenged what he says are "misrepresentative" statements made by opponent Richard Neal in two media interviews last week.

During an interview on WGBY's "Connecting Point," Neal stated that both Shein and Andrea F. Nuciforo Jr., Middle Berkshire register of deeds, first entered the race against retiring U.S. Rep. John W. Olver.

The three men are vying for the Democrat nomination to fill Olver's
