On Tuesday, Massachusetts lawmakers released their proposed maps for redrawing state House and Senate districts.  Our Station Manager immediately got on the phone with local legislators, setting up interviews to get their thoughts on the new political lines as they relate to Greenfield, and we hope to post that story on our homepage next week.
