West Stockbridge voters try to break tie with Monday election

Jul 14, 2023 1:03 pm

Heather Bellow reports in The Berkshire Eagle voters in West Stockbridge are voting again July 17, after the May 8 election and a May 19 recount ended in a 202-202 tie between Kathleen Keresey and Jon Piasecki for a town board seat. Because only 406 out of the town’s 1,217 registered voters cast ballots in May, Keresey says, “I really think that it’s a get the vote out situation.” A controversy between two neighbors and business owners over noise, zoning, and permits has had tempers high in West Stockbridge recently, and both candidates have said they want to see a return to civil discourse. Voting is from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. at the Town Hall gymnasium. Read more about this story in The Berkshire Eagle.
