Massachusetts Motorcycle PAC Backs Szczepaniak

Campaign Statement

The Massachusetts Motorcycle Political Action Committee has endorsed Dalton Selectman Tom Szczepaniak in the race for the 2nd Berkshire District state representative seat.

"Tom's experience with transportation and improving our infrastructure at Berkshire Regional Planning Commission combined with his commitment to ensuring motorcyclists freer and safer conditions on Bay State roads and highways make him the best choice for state representative," said MMA Berkshire County representative Joe Tatro. "The MMPAC is always happy to help candidates like Tom Szczepaniak, who understand motorcyclists' issues and are concerned with their safety while using our public roads."

Bowler Gets Another Boost

Staff Reports

Sheriff candidate Tom Bowler poses with DA David F. Capeless, left, and Lenox Police Chief Steve O'Brien after being endorsed by the county's police chiefs

Tom Bowler, the Pittsfield Police detective running for Berkshire County sheriff, put another feather in his cap this morning with an endorsement from the Berkshire County Police Chiefs Association.

The monthly roundup of the county's top cops met at the Williams Inn and the gathering included District Attorney David F. Capeless and Berkshire Brigades leader Lee Harrison.

This is Bowler's second endorsement from his brothers and sisters in blue. Local 297 International Brotherhood of Correctional Officers overwhelmingly backed the former jail worker in a vote last month. Other high-ranking officers have indicated support for Bowler but won't publicly endorse anyone until after an expected primary on Sept. 14 between he and Rep. Daniel E. Bosley.

The endorsements bode ill for Bosley, the only other candidate who's confirmed he's in the race. The veteran legislator, however, isn't running on a law enforcement background but on the issues of rehabilition, education and social ills and his Beacon Hill contacts. Four others have taken out papers. Each candidate must gather 500 signatures by April 27.
