Print Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

On May 1, the town of Adams will vote in the newest member of the Board of Selectmen. Please join me in voting for Christine Hoyt. Christine's career in business and education, along with her volunteer pursuits, has provided her with the skillsets necessary to succeed.

Adams has its share of troubles but also it's a wonderful town with exciting things happening. We must have a leader poised to embrace both the struggles and the opportunities. We need someone who will listen and consider all sides, someone ready to collaborate and keep an open mind, someone determined to work hard and make a difference. We need Christine Hoyt.

Since moving to Adams 10 years ago with her husband, Peter, Christine has demonstrated a commitment to the town and surrounding Berkshire County community. Locally, she has served on the Adams Youth Center Board of Directors for eight years, the ProAdams Board of Directors for three years, she's been a town meeting member (precinct 1) for thee years, and on the Adams Economic Development Commission for the past two years. More broadly, she has served on the Downtown Pittsfield Inc. Board, worked with the Berkshire United Way, and with 1Berkshire through her work with the Berkshire Leadership Program.

Please join us on Thursday, April 20, at 5:30 p.m. at the Adams Ale House to talk with Christine about her plan for Adams. I look forward to seeing you there!

Leah Thompson
Adams, Mass.; Adams Resident and member of the Committee to Elect Christine Hoyt

Elections Go Off Without a Hitch in Adams, Cheshire

By Jeff SnoonianiBerkshires Staff

Mike Kruszyna, seen with his wife, Karen, at the polls Monday, unseated incumbent Jeffrey Warner for a three-year term on the Cheshire Board of Health.
ADAMS, Mass. — Adams and Cheshire held their annual town elections Monday and despite all the changes necessitated by the COVID-19 pandemic, there were no problems reported at either polling station. 
The towns typically hold local elections on the first Monday in May but the social distancing guidelines implemented by Gov. Charlie Baker nearly 80 days ago forced them to draw up new plans. The towns are obligated to hold elections on the same day because of their shared school district.
Voter turnout was down in both towns, which could be attributed to the virus or to the lack of uncontested offices.
Cheshire had just two, the Board of Health, where challenger Mike Kruszyna unseated incumbent Jeffrey Warner for a three-year term (275-141), and a write-in campaign by Colin Haas that fell just short (195-173) for the Water Commissioner spot held by Mickey Biagini. There were 420 votes cast in total.
