    Excellent story. However, Berkshire County is hardly “conservative with a small c.” Voting patterns are not necessarily a perfect measure of this, but if you look at the last few elections, it’s the second-bluest county in the state. Anecdotally, I can tell you it has always had strong liberal undertones, enhanced significantly in the past 30 years or so by the influx of New Yorkers and artists.
