MA - Candidates for State Rep Debate

Berkshire Eagle

Just two excerpts:

A crowd of fewer than 60 people was sprinkled throughout the spacious Boland Theatre on the campus of Berkshire Community College, including a handful of protesters holding signs in favor of fathers' rights. They watched the candidates debate without a moderator, discussing subjects of their choosing in three-minute segments.

(Terry) Kinnas said he would support enforcing the votes of past referendums, including one in favor of shared parenting and another to roll back the state income tax to 5 percent.

Republican Terry Kinnas is apparently the underdog in this race. He is competing against Christopher Speranzo who previously "worked as an assistant attorney general in the civil rights division of the state attorney general's office."

Admittedly, I do not know Mr Speranzo's position on the shared parenting referendum. Considering the staggering public approval for the measure I would be hard pressed to think anyone who campaign against it - however, as an attorney, Mr Speranzo might have a vested interest in the status quo.

On Mr Speranzo's website I could find little substantive outside of a position on taxes.

This is a link to Mr Speranzo's website.

From the article it appears as though Mr Kinnas is firmly in support of the referendum. However, I am at a loss for contact info for Mr Kinnas.

The election will be held on April 12th.
