Letter: Vote For Alex Morse

Print Story | Email Story

To the Editor:

Here is a letter to support voting for Alex Morse in the Sept. 1 Massachusetts primary for the seat in the U.S. House of Representatives' First Congressional District.

As a sometimes songwriter, my recent song, "Ripped," expresses why we should vote Morse on Sept. 1:

Name is Rip Van Winkle.
Just had a little dream.
How long have I been sleeping?
Seems like the same ol’ scene.

Does anyone care
That the world is still at war?
Or have we learned to share?
Do the rich ever grift and hoard?

Name is Rip Van Winkle ...

Which criminals are in office?
Are they the usual losers?
Or have they been locked up


Like the drug pushers?

Name is Rip Van Winkle …

Are the poor still with us?
Blocking our sidewalks?
Truth tellers under the bus?
Do our leaders walk the talk?

Name is Rip Van Winkle.
Just had a little dream.
How long have I been sleeping?
Seems like the same ol’ scene.
Seems like the same ol’ scene.
Same old, same old scene.
Same old, same old scene.
Same old, same old - NIGHTMARE!

Vote for change! Vote for Alex Morse on Sept. 1.

Pittsfield Councilors Ask for Accountability on Police Grants

By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — Two city councilors are asking for more transparency and accountability within the Pittsfield Police Department in relation to department spending.
 
Ward 1 Councilor Helen Moon and Councilor at Large Earl Persip III pointed out the need for accountability at last week's council meeting in regard to the city's acceptance of a $233,940 Support and Incentive grant from the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security.
 
"What we clearly know is, in some spaces the system is broken, people are asking for more accountability out of police departments," Persip said. "So I just think people want to be able to see where their tax dollars are ultimately going.
 
"I am not suggesting the chief or the Police Department is doing something they shouldn't be, I just think that people are more interested in where their dollars are spent in the Police Department, so I think as city councilors, as administration, we want to be open about that."
