Tautznik To Run for Knapik’s State Senate Seat

Two people have already said they’ll run for the state Senate seat being vacated by Mike Knapik of Westfield.  The ranking Republican on the Senate Ways and Means Committee is stepping down Friday.  Knapik has accepted a top fundraising position with Westfield State University.  He’s been on Beacon Hill for more than two decades and is respected on both sides of the aisle.  Outgoing Easthampton Mayor Mike Tautznik says he’ll run for Knapik’s seat as a Democrat. Republican State Rep Don Humason of Westfield also says he’ll run in the special election.
