Pittsfield residents mingle with candidates during Working Cities mixer
Berkshire Eagle: A 10-year-old walked up to mayoral candidate Melissa Mazzeo with a list of questions.
"Why are you running?" asked the girl, whose name tag read Markiara. "What do you want to do to help?"
Mazzeo said she's running to help children like her feel safer in their neighborhoods.
The line of questioning stood out among many during a candidate mixer on Monday at the Berkshire Athenaeum. About 100 people showed for the event, during which volunteers for opposing campaigns brushed elbows as they helped themselves to plates of pizza, pasta and salad.
