LOCAL OFFICIALS SAY SUPPORT FOR ROSENBERG STILL RUNS STRONG

AMHERST, MASS., DEC. 5, 2017.....As leadership of the Senate slipped out of Sen. Stanley Rosenberg's hands Monday, officials nearly 100 miles away in the former Senate president's hometown applauded his decision to step aside and said there is a "deep well of support" for him in the western part of the state.

Amherst Select Board Chair Douglas Slaughter told the News Service: "This is a situation that is unfortunate, and particularly personally unfortunate for him I'm sure, but also his actions to step aside to make sure the process of the investigation going on is happening without his bias or interference, shades of gray as it were, that might influence people or might make people think it has not been done forthright way, I applaud him for that."

"I certainly appreciate him stepping aside . . . to clear the way so the Senate can continue its work and he can serve us the best he can at the moment and the Senate can keep functioning," Slaughter added.
