Letter: Alcombright Endorses Caccaviello for District Attorney

Letter to the EditorPrint Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

As a former mayor of the City of North Adams and on Sept. 4, I will be voting for Paul Caccaviello for district attorney.

A lifelong resident of Berkshire County, Paul has spent three decades as a prosecutor. He has been in the trenches from day one and has handled thousands of cases and tried many in front of juries in all of our Berkshire County courts. As he has in the past, Paul will continue to keep you and all Berkshire County residents safe.

Pushing the political rhetoric aside, and as you cast your vote, remind yourself of this: in the worst moments of your life, if you or a family member is a victim of a serious crime, Paul Cacciavello is the person you want standing up on your behalf in court.



I know Paul and I know I am voting for a man with a tremendous record, a man of outstanding character, a man who cannot be corrupted, a man who will not make a promise he cannot deliver on, a man who has truly earned the distinction of district attorney and the obvious and absolute voice of experience.

Please join me in voting for Paul Caccaviello on Sept. 4.

Dick Alcombright
North Adams, Mass.

PopCares Cancer Charity Has Helped Nearly 900 People

By Tammy DanielsiBerkshires Staff

Kate Zarnay tells the crowd about her son's cancer and how PopCares has helped her family.  
NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — PopCares has proved a powerful force in helping local residents dealing with cancer, largely thanks to the outpouring of support from a community that's raised more than a half million dollars over the past eight years.
 
On Saturday, that generosity was on full display as some 600 or so attended the annual chicken dinner fundraiser held for the third year at Greylock Works and catered by David Nicholas of Bounti-Fare.
 
The charity was founded by the family of William "Pop" St. Pierre, who died of cancer in 2012, both to memorialize his kindness and to help other families suffering from the disease.
 
"Cancer does not just come for us physically, it comes for us emotionally, mentally, and financially as well. When cancer comes for you, it comes for your whole family and all who love you," said Kate Zarnay, whose son Jacob has been battling cancer on several fronts since infancy. "The reality is adequate treatment options do not exist for Jacob, and many people fighting cancer locally, especially children."
