The Berkshire NAACP had hoped to host a debate at Conte Community School in Pittsfield between Congressman Richard Neal and his primary challenger Tahirah Amatul-Wadud, a Springfield Lawyer. Ms Amatul-Wadud had accepted the invitation, but Congressman Neal has declined. Consequently, the planned debate is cancelled.
