ADAMS, Mass. — It is a privilege to announce my candidacy for Adams town moderator.

I have lived in Adams my entire life and decided several years ago to help keep our town moving forward. Growing up in Adams has taught me a few things; everyone knows who you are or knows a family member, people will always stand firm for what they believe in and most importantly, the extreme interest in the citizens of Adams to be part of the community. Some citizens are involved in our town government, some are involved in community organizations or both.

I am involved with both. Currently I am a member of town meeting for Precinct 2, the Historical Commission, Redevelopment Authority and

ADAMS, Mass. — Longtime School Committee member John E. Duval resigned on Tuesday to pursue a seat on the Board of Selectmen.

Duval, who has served on the Adams-Cheshire Regional School Committee for 17 years, said in a statement that his experience on the committee would inform his decisionmaking on the Selectmen.

NORTH ADAMS, Mass. — The presidential primaries didn't spark much attention in Berkshire County, with low turnout reported across the region as well as the state. The results weren't the least bit surprising, with Mitt Romney leading the Republicans to win his state.

In North Adams, only 579 votes were cast out of 8,717 registered voters, less than 7 percent. The big winner was the one candidate who had no primary challenger: Barack Obama. The Democratic incumbent won 276 votes.
