Capt. Renee Stracuzzi checks shelf-stable food ready for delivery at the Second Street Jail in Pittsfield. The Partnership for Health in the Berkshires is providing "medically tailored meals" and grocery deliveries to people in the community battling chronic illness. Jack Quinn worked on this program after retiring as superintendent of the Berkshire County Jail and House of Correction, earning him pay from grants on top of his pension. Those earnings have been criticized by the challenger looking to unseat Bowler and assume the role of sheriff. 

PITTSFIELD — Though he retired as superintendent of the Berkshire County Jail and House of Correction in early 2021, Jack Quinn stayed on in a different paid role.

Quinn’s work on behalf of the Partnership for Health in the Berkshires program and his work facilitating reentry services from the former Second Street jail paid him a total of $70,246 from grants over two fiscal years.
