To the Editor:

I’m looking forward to voting for Andrea Harrington for DA Tuesday.

Not only because I think she is the best candidate to make positive change happen but also because she is the ONLY progressive candidate likely to beat the incumbent in Tuesday’s election.

Changing the trajectory of criminal justice in Berkshire County will have a life or death affect on the school-to-prison pipeline in Berkshire County. That is extremely important to me. I see its consequences in Pittsfield every day. While it may not directly affect some of us (or some may think), it affects many families in the Berkshires, especially in communities of color. I do not want to risk our chance for real reform destroyed.

I ask that those readers who are on the fence, or who are flexible, read more about Andrea and her platform here: www.harringtonfordistrictattorney.com and to please consider voting for her.

In addition, she has been endorsed by a number of progressive statewide and national organizations, including Progressive Democrats of Massachusetts, the Working Families Party, the Massachusetts Women’s Political Caucus, Progressive Massachusetts, and the Massachusetts Nurses Association.

Thank you for your consideration, and please don’t forget to vote Tuesday, September 4th!

Megan Whilden
