Ty Allan Jackson Bows Out of City Council Race

Staff ReportsPrint Story | Email Story
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Local businessman Ty Allan Jackson put an end to his campaign for City Council on Monday.
 
Jackson was the first to announce a campaign for City Council at large back in February. On Monday, through a Facebook post, the children's author bowed out.
 
"It is with deep regret that after serious consideration and careful thought, I am I dropping out of the race to run for city council. I came to the conclusion that it is not possible for me to serve on the city council while simultaneously perform my duties as a literacy advocate," Jackson wrote.
 
"My business has grown substantially since I signed on as a candidate and it's requiring me to travel on a consistent basis, taking away from the attentiveness I would need to serve Pittsfield properly. This wonderful city deserves council members who are going to give their all for the betterment of our city and I realized with my constant travel I would not be able to serve in the manner in which I prefer."
 
The end of that campaign leaves seven potential candidates for four at-large seats. As of the end of early May, Alex Blumin, Ed Carmel, Craig Gaetani, Auron Stark and incumbents Peter Marchetti, Melissa Mazzeo, and Peter White had all take out nomination papers. Incumbent Kathleen Amuso will not be seeking re-election.
