More Info

In 1999, Lee Harrison and Sherwood Guernsey created a countywide Democratic organization that would eventually become Berkshire Democratic Brigades, an organization that sent activists to New Hampshire, Pennsylvania, and Ohio for John Kerry in 2004 and which continues to organize Democrats to this day. Lee chaired the Williamstown Committee for most of the 2000s, and was elected to the Massachusetts Democratic State Committee more than 15 years ago. A graduate of the Columbia Graduate School of Journalism, Lee firmly believes that, as Jefferson said, “democracy itself depends on an informed electorate,” and he has spent the last four decades diligently working to shore up our democracy by informing that electorate.
