To mask or not to mask
TO THE WEST: Longmeadow Democrat Sydney Levin-Epstein is launching her campaign today for the state Senate seat that Eric Lesser is vacating to run for lieutenant governor. She's centering her pitch around job creation and "West-East rail."
Levin-Epstein is a Lesser and Sen. Ed Markey campaign alum who also worked for Markey and Rep. Richard Neal’s offices in Washington. She managed Anthony D’Ambrosio’s unsuccessful state Senate bid.
Levin-Epstein is the second candidate to enter the race for what will be known as the Hampden, Hampshire and Worcester district under the new redistricting map. She’s vying against first-term state Rep. Jake Oliveira, who jumped in last week.
