The unopposed on what’s next: NORTH ADAMS -- State Rep. Gailanne Cariddi, D-North Adams, and state Sen. Benjamin Downing, D-Pittsfield, both of whom ran unopposed on Tuesday’s ballot, talked about their priorities and looked ahead to renewed two-year terms in recent interviews with the Transcript.
The two local lawmakers, despite facing no competition for their respective positions, spent Tuesday making rounds at various polling spots to meet and thank constituents and support fellow Democrats.
With the election over, it’s back to business.

Elks help keep flags flying: NORTH ADAMS -- A local organization has donated a set of six flags -- honoring the five branches of the U.S. military and prisoners of war/missing in action -- to replace those flying over the city’s Veterans Memorial Park.
Members of the North Adams Elks Lodge No. 487 were on hand Tuesday to present the flags to Mayor Richard J. Alcombright and retired U.S. Army Command Sgt. Major Enrico Gaspardi, who raised over $6,000 to place the flags and poles at the park.
