Conservative State Candidates Pitch Campaigns in Pittsfield
By Brittany PolitoiBerkshires Staff
Candidate Dean Martilli, with the Kathryn Mickle of the Berkshire County Republicans, was one of three conservative candidates pitching their campaigns at the meet and greet.
PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The Berkshire County Republican Association recently hosted congressional candidate Dean Martilli at the Berkshire Hills County Club.
The West Springfield native spoke of his priorities to secure the U.S. border, deflate inflation, gain energy independence, and restore parental rights.
He previously worked in Washington, D.C., as chief of staff to U.S. Rep. Patrick Kennedy of Rhode Island and is founder and principal of Martilli & Associates, an independent public-policy and governmental affairs firm that specializes in strategic planning, business development, marketing, and communications.
In the fall, he will challenge the incumbent in the 1st Massachusetts District, Democrat Richard Neal, who has served in Congress for more than 30 years and is the chair of the powerful Ways and Means Committee.
The Republican association's Kathryn Mickle introduced him. About 20 attended the event, including an appearance from Ward 2 Councilor Charles Kronick.
The breakfast and lunch spot, located inside Crawford Square at 137 North Street, offers coffee and tea, bagels, sandwiches, pastries, and more. It opened in late May and has been well received by old and new customers.
