Hillary for Massachusetts to open Pittsfield office, five others


PITTSFIELD — Hillary for Massachusetts on Saturday will open an organizing office in Pittsfield — one of six across the state.

Volunteers and supporters will officially open the offices before going door-to-door in nearby communities, talking to their friends and neighbors about why they believe Hillary Clinton is the only Democratic candidate who can achieve real results for families, especially in underserved communities.

A recent poll of likely Democratic primary voters showed Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders leading Clinton by 7 points in the Massachusetts primary race, according to MassLive. The primary will be held March 1.

Offices also will open in Boston, New Bedford, Springfield, Holyoke and Worcester.

Hillary for Massachusetts members will gather at 10 a.m. at the office at 137 North St. to engage supporters and volunteers to be part of the campaign by signing a "Commit to Vote" card, pledging to vote for Clinton in the primary.

The Public Policy Polling survey showed Sanders with 49 percent to Clinton's 42 percent.

The poll interviewed likely Democratic primary voters from Feb. 14 to Feb. 16. About 538 people were interviewed in Massachusetts, with automated phone calls to landlines and "online interviews of cell phone only respondents," according to Public Policy Polling.

The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 4.2 percent in Massachusetts.
