Letter: Hinds is a product of Pittsfield machine

Hinds is a product of Pittsfield machine

To the editor:

I support Andrea Harrington for state senator. There are many reasons why, but here are some of them.

Adam Hinds is part of the political machine of Pittsfield. He worked for Rep. Olver and Sen. Kerry, which means he is also part of the political machine of Washington, D.C.

So it is not surprising that he accepted money from Exxon Mobil, Berkshire Gas, Kinder-Morgan, the New England Power Generator Assoc. and out-of-state lobbyists representing fossil fuel conglomerates.

Hinds has only been here for a few years and has only worked for Berkshire political machine organizations. He has no stake in the welfare of Berkshire residents. He will do what the lobbyists tell him to do.

Harrington has lived here for decades. She has children in school here. She is an accomplished lawyer. She has served on committees and other groups that have benefitted Berkshire residents for many years.

On Thursday, let us break the political machine of Pittsfield. Oil and coal power generating companies may control Washington, D.C., but they do not control us!

Thomas Marini, Pittsfield
