Iím so glad that others feel the same way I do about Jennifer Breen Kirsch. She is independent and intelligent and upcoming. I have read many posts today that tell me thereís lots of jealousy out there concerning Jennifer. Donít worry Jennifer. Thereís lots of support out there for women like you. Itís wonderful to see young, well educated professionals return to this city. I believe Jennifer is having a very positive influence on this city. Please donít let the jealousy of others stand in your way. There are lots of people who will say cruel and untrue things so others will be afraid to stand up for what they believe in. Donít let that happen to you. It concerned me greatly that Dan Bosley is closely stalking Facebook. If heís watching Jenniferís Facebook page that closely, is he also watching yours. Is that what weíre really looking for in a sheriff. And, upon finding something, it seemed he waited almost three weeks to do something. Why could that be? Was it because he wanted to see how the campaign was going? And itís strange he brought his information to The Berkshire Eagle. Again, I have to ask myself why? Is this what we can expect if he becomes sheriff? Did I hear mention of a campaign run with integrity? This isnít my definition of integrity. Jennifer, again, keep up the excellent work you do for North Adams.

I'm also friends with Jenny Breen-Kirsch on facebook. I have never known her to be cut throat or abrasive. If I don't feel like reading about her support of Alcombright, Bowler, Coakley or North Adams Crime Watch I just scroll past the comments. That's why they put a scroll bar on the right side of your computer screen. What is it about people that can't stand to see a bright, intelligent young woman speak her mind or work hard? Seems like the problem isn't with Jenny its with you. What is it exactly that you do all day for a living? Oh and by the way I'm pretty sure she isn't crying herself to sleep every night because you aren't her friend anymore.
Oh well good for you! You scroll, I delete, either way it is obvious we both find her annoying.
I didn't sign up for Facebook to be lambasted daily by some obsessed person's political agenda. And spare me the whole "I'm a sexist or somehow jealous of the hometown girl who worked her way through the ranks to become a lawyer".( They have already done a movie about that titled: Erin Brockovich). Go rent it. And unless I am doing something illegal or unethical at MY job than MY career is totally irrelevant.

Integrity? Talk about lack of - a practicing attorney breaking the ethics laws. Yes that's right - Keep up the good work.

I am curious why there was no such support on Topix when the Bowler fans called Bosley's daughter and her friends "slutty" looking on these threads after a campaign stand-out?

Or do only women in power suits "like" JBK get that kind of support?

Go, Jen, go!
Breen-Kirsch is bad news and shortly nobody will want her around. She is looking for a job with Bowler plain and simple. Word has it that even Alcombright and his wife have dropped her from their group of friends, not that is bad. She is a loose cannon and the more she makes viscious attacks on people the more people will see her as a liability.

And the good news is..... The Alcombright Team would NEVER drop Jenny! She is not only a good friend of the Alcombrights but a key player in the Ateam! Dick also appointed her to the Housing Commission! Yup, she is the chairwomen! Bosleys team is just afraid of a smart, young woman and they will say anything!!! Go Jenny North Adams Loves You!!

Enough, enough, enough of the Bosley is trying to fool people with his Sheriff Bosley signs. Bosley had been a State Rep for years and EVERYBODY knows it. He's not fooling anybody because he's not trying to fool anybody. It's advertising! It is a word association game like any other. Think Sheriff, think Bosley.

Lawn signs? What about issues? Bowler's campaign is taking you all for fools and he's ducked all the issues or opportunities to talk about them. Come on Tom, where's the integrity? That's what you tout on your signs.

It is Bosley who is taking the voters for fools. He IS counting on the fact that an overwhelming number of voters have no idea who the current Sheriff is and will assume it is him and for lack of any knowledge will just re-elect the incumbent - as so often happens. He is certainly not going to fool everybody, but he is hoping to fool enough.

Ah yes, but she didn't do anything illegal or unethical. She is supporting a candidate. The more you rant about the Erin Brockovichs of the world the more you paint yourself as a sexist. And by the way I never said she was annoying. I find her to be pretty straightforward and likeable.

Did she violate ethics laws and campaign laws, seems like it if found guilty that will be most telling about her "ethics".

The issue, lest we all forget, is that she used State resources and her office to disseminate campaign materials. To show you how clueless Capeless is, saying "do it in the parking lot" is not appropriate either. They rent the facility along with parking spaces, and a semi-private lot. Only people renting the building are allowed to use the lot. If this "transaction" took place in the parking lot, she would still be in violation.
The fact that Capeless downplays this, shows exactly where his ethical center is.

File a complaint, what a joke. You my friend are a moron and you would never reveal who you are as we would all find out who the moron(s) is from Glens Falls.

Masimiano was Sheriff for decades! Bosley a Rep. for 26 years and you are trying to say the the "overwhelming" number of voters don't know who's who in Berkshire County government!

Integrity? Tom Bowler integrity= taking people for fools and taking a dishonest approach to selling himself. Superficial B.S. rolled out for the dummies to swallow hook, line and sinker. Thanks Tommy for showing respect for the intelligence of Berkshire County voters.

This race is closer than the Bowler camp thinks because of it!

Uncle Milty, you are smoking crack if you think this race is close. Bosley was in bed with the indicted DeMasi, got slapped around because of it, and lost any influence he had as a result thereby hurting us in North Berkshire.

I suppose sticking lawn signs that lead knuckleheads like yourself into thinking he's "Sheriff Bosley" is honesty at it's height?!

Bosley is a has-been. He's done. The only people that have lawn signs are the rabid Barrett supporters, and we all know how that turned out, don't we Milty.

Sorry, Uncle Milty, but Bosley's red-beard-man buttons are some pretty superficial BS. So are the misleading signs. So are the lame photos on Bosley's website - you know, the flinty-glare ones. So is the fake debate outrage. So is the hullabaloo over the "ethics breach".

The race is NOT closer than I think. It's going to be an old-fashioned arse-whupping like we just saw with Barrett.

Bosley's been in government too long, and people are sick of him. His time is over. Obviously, his arrogant, cynical mindset has trapped him into believing his own stories.

He could do one or two things to redeem himself slightly before September 14th... I'd like to see him shave off that messy beard, get a decent haircut, and lose a few pant sizes. Then I might think he's serious about the job, and not just looking for the pension.

ABSOLUTELY! Don't compare the average voter to you or me or anyone else who is commenting in this thread. We obviously know because we have either taken the time to know or have the desire to know. The overwhelming number of voters do not.

Go ahead, stop some random people on the street and ask them who the current Sheriff is and who our current State Rep is. I guarantee you that most won't have a clue.

Bosley's high-priced marketing consultants know this and the "Sheriff Bosley" signs were born.

I would be happy to file a claim of impersonating a law enforcement officer. I was waiting to see how long it was before people started doing this.
