I grew up here in the Berkshires – right down the road. I went to Pittsfield public schools. My family has been in the Berkshires for generations – working for Sprague Electric and GE, and as farmers, carpenters and housekeepers. In my family, you simply worked hard.

My grandmother, Janet Blasioli, started working at GE mopping the floors. A supervisor asked her if she knew how to type. She told him that she did indeed and when she sat down at that typewriter – for the very first time in her life – she learned how to type, one hunt and peck at a time.

That legacy of a strong work ethic and pushing personal limits has instilled in me the grit that is required to tackle tough problems.
