Former Opponents Back Mazzeo Against Tyer After Pittsfield Preliminary Election

WAMC: Following her preliminary election victory Tuesday, Pittsfield, Massachusetts mayoral candidate Melissa Mazzeo announced two endorsements on the steps of city hall Wednesday afternoon.

In unofficial city tallies, Mazzeo secured first place with 2860 votes to first-term Mayor Linda Tyer’s 2571 in the preliminary election. The top two vote-getters advance to November’s general election.

“As you can all imagine, I’m thrilled to be continuing our campaign’s journey, and last night’s results I believe tell a story of a city looking for something out of the corner office – accountability," said Mazzeo. "I stand here today with two others who felt very strong about that word, and what it would mean to have a mayor who each and every day cares deeply about how your tax dollars are being spent.”
