Humason Kicks Off Senate Campaign

(Holyoke, MA) — Republican State Rep Don Humason has kicked off his campaign for State Senate. Speaking at the WhereHouse in Holyoke, Humason said his top priority would be economic development and jobs. He’s running for the Senate seat Mike Knapik left last month for a top job at Westfield State. If Humason wins the GOP nod against veteran candidate Mike Franco, he’ll face either Easthampton Mayor Mike Tautznik or Holyoke City Councilor David Bartley in the general election.
