Governor Baker to face strong opposition in upcoming election

By Joel Williams

PITTSFIELD — Gov. Charlie Baker has a tough road ahead if he hopes to be re-elected.

Three hopefuls for the Democratic nomination for governor were in Pittsfield at the American Legion building in Pittsfield for the Democratic Governor candidates forum.

A packed roomful of voters listened intently as they discussed potential policy and answered questions from the audience.

Jay Gonzalez, Bob Massie, and Settie Warren each hope to unseat Baker in the gubernatorial election this November. With so many red states turning blue in the wake of the presidential election, as state Sen. Adam Hinds D-Pittsfield pointed out in his opening remarks, it seems likely that there will be a new face behind the governor’s desk in Boston.

The forum focused on the issues that are most pressing for western Massachusetts. A commonly repeated theme throughout the evening which was met with thunderous applause was, “Massachusetts does not end at Worcester,” or “Massachusetts does not end at Springfield.”

For the full story, pick up an issue of this week’s Berkshire Record.
