PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Berkshire Money Management, a locally based investment advisory firm, announces that Pittsfield native Peter Coughlin has been hired as the company's executive director.

Coughlin joined the BMM team in December. He will be focusing on new business development, portfolio management, and client education and communication.

Coughlin brings 30 years of experience, including more than two decades at USB Wealth Management and several years at Wells Fargo Advisors. He works with a wide variety of clients, including corporate executives, retirees, and families. His goal with each client is simple.

"I help those that need guidance and advice," he said. "Those that need a plan and to be put on the right path."



Berkshire Money Management President Allen Harris described Coughlin as a valuable asset to the team of seasoned advisors.

"The greatest assets a business can have are smart stakeholders who highly rate the service and value delivered to its clients," Harris said. "As Berkshire Money Management continues to help new clients manage their retirement experience, Peter will be a valuable resource in allowing clients to feel comfortable in getting to, and through, retirement."

In addition to his decades of investment experience, Coughlin and his family have deep roots locally. He lives in Pittsfield with his wife Sheila, a dental hygienist with Dr. Paul Gamache. Together they have raised four children — two daughters and twin sons -- and are proud grandparents.

Pittsfield Hallween Parade Cancelled, Trick or Treat is On

By Brittany Polito

PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The city's long-beloved Halloween parade is canceled for the second consecutive year due to COVID-19 but trick or treat is a go.

Recreation & Special Events Coordinator Becky Manship told the Parks Commission on Tuesday that unfortunately there will be no parade due to a rise in COVID-19 cases but local children will be able to go door to door for candy on Oct. 30 from 5:30 p.m. to 7 p.m.

But trick or treat is still scheduled, and those who are interested in handing out candy are to leave their outside lights on during this time.

Manship said this is the planned date, but the looming virus could warrant a change of plans as with all events.

"It's too early to really tell what the numbers will be at that point so stay tuned on messaging down the road," she said.

Park and Open Space Program Manager James McGrath said it is really up to parents' discretion if they want their families to participate in trick or treat or not.

"It never has been mandatory to participate in trick or treating," He said. "We just want to make certain that the tradition can continue but parents can make good decisions and keep their children safe in their neighborhood."
