Experience building relationships key reason to vote Harrington for DA

To the editor,

Will experience decide the District Attorney race? I think it should—and that is why I support Andrea Harrington.

Hey, Greylock Nation, today is Tuesday, October 23, and you’re listening to TLC episode #67. I’m your host, Jason Velázquez, and, as always, thanks so much for tuning in. On this week’s show, we explore the topic of the Registry of Deeds.
