NORTH ADAMS — North Adams Mayor Tom Bernard has endorsed U.S. Senator Ed Markey in his bid for re-election.
First elected in 2017, Bernard is currently serving his first term as mayor of North Adams. In his role as mayor, Bernard serves as Chair of the School Committee of North Adams.
“Mayor Bernard’s leadership in North Adams has helped to create a thriving and prosperous city,” said Markey. “His focus on neighborhood revitalization, job creation, and improvements to public schools demonstrates that he is working hard for the people of North Adams. I am proud to have his endorsement.”
“Senator Markey is a strong leader and a champion for progressive values,” said Bernard. “From economic justice to social justice to climate justice he fights with us and for us on the issues that matter to working people and working families.”
Senator Markey has delivered for the residents of North Adams as their representative in the United States Senate. Last May, Senator Markey introduced legislation that would return the local broadcast television stations WWLP and WCVB to the air in Berkshire County. Senator Markey also recognizes that transportation infrastructure spending is crucial for the economic development of Western Massachusetts, and has worked to secure millions in funding for transportation projects across the Commonwealth.
Senator Markey has served in the United States Senate for the last six years, and is widely regarded as the leading member of Congress on environmental issues. He has also led legislation to protect consumers and address the opioid epidemic, internet privacy concerns, and net neutrality.
