Berkshire County no help to Brown

Full story: Berkshire Eagle

I was brought up many years ago in Brooklyn, N.Y. My neighborhood was heavily Democratic, but so was most of the city.

Berkshire County continues to prove to one and all just how behind the curve it stubbornly remains.
Businessmen, before deciding where to set up a prospective big operation, will ofttimes look to see how a county votes.
If a CEO sees a predominance of Democrat vote totals, large numbers of die-hard union fanatics, lots of obtuse zoning rules and regulations, then be honest, do you honestly think that CEO is going to risk investor capital (especially in a recession) in a place like Berkshire County?
Yeah, right.
It's no wonder Berkshire County lost GE, and keeps losing ever increasing numbers of local businesses that heretofore were mainstays.
GE's Welch abandoned Berkshire County because it was becoming simply too expensive and too burdensome to continue doing business here.
Keep it up Berkshire County, keep whistling past the cemetery!
