Catskill Freedom Network to hold fundraiser

Pittsfield — The newly established Catskill Freedom Network will hold its first public event, an ice cream social and fundraiser, on Thursday, July 27, from 5 to 7 p.m. at the Law Offices of Sherwood Guernsey. Guernsey, the founder and chair of CFN, is a former member of the Massachusetts House of Representatives.

CFN is an all-volunteer grassroots Democratic political action committee whose aim is to elect a Democrat and defeat Republican Rep. John Faso in New York’s 19th Congressional district when he runs for re-election in 2018. Faso has gained notoriety in CD-19 for his role as a sponsor of and apologist for Republican efforts to repeal the Affordable Care Act and his refusal to meet with his constituents.

CFN was created by longstanding Berkshire Democratic activists from the Berkshire Brigades working in partnership with CD-19 leaders. It is part of and takes its inspiration from a national movement to “flip” Congress in favor of the Democratic party by coordinating the activities of Democrats from neighboring districts to more effectively challenge vulnerable Republicans in the midterm elections.

The event will be family friendly with food and entertainment. Tickets are not required, but donations to CFN are encouraged. Those planning to attend the event are asked to RSVP to

BOB GRAY: Children’s Crusade

Friday, Feb 23 - Following the latest school shooting atrocity in Parkland, Florida, another Children’s Crusade is rising: a largely youth-bred movement meant to persuade legislators to take some meaningful action to stem the needless deaths of our country’s children in schools.


Wednesday, Feb 21 - It didn’t take long for me to realize that the young adults of Parkland were cutting through the layers of despair I had built up all these years. They were telling their truth with passion and conviction.

Cockroaches, Lent and felled innocence

Tuesday, Feb 20 - On an average, 96 people a day are killed by gunfire in the United States. Yesterday, 17 children were killed in Florida. That leaves 79 others whose names and faces we won’t be seeing online or in print, but they are still dead.
