In MA, Green state rep. candidate ‘expects to win’ in 2011, after getting 45% in 2010
PITTSFIELD — Mark C. Miller, the Green-Rainbow party candidate who challenged state Rep. Christopher N. Speranzo last November, formally announced he’s a contender for the seat Speranzo has to give up if he’s confirmed for the Central Berkshire District Court clerk-magistrate job.
In an announcement to supporters Thursday, Miller said he plans to run for the 3rd Berkshire District seat, which covers most of Pittsfield.
Miller told The Eagle that he expects a tough race, but he also expects to win — in part because this campaign will be better organized and have more volunteer help than his previous one.
The fact that he commanded 45 percent of last November’s vote, for a campaign he essentially ran alone, tells him that he has a real chance this year, he said.
