Mark Jester Head Shot
Mr. Mark Jester (Pittsfield, MA) Mark is a lifelong resident of the Berkshires who traces his love of the outdoors and commitment to conservation issues to a friendship he had with the late Congressman Silvio Conte. He first became involved in the conservation movement in the early 1980s when he became a member of the Lakewood Sportsmen's Club. For over 20 years, Mark worked in the insurance industry with the Pierce Hill Insurance Agency, including a decade as the company's Vice President. He also worked as a consultant for the National Wildlife Federation and continues to serve as the President of Berkshire County League of Sportsmen and on the Board of Directors for the Massachusetts League of Environmental Voters. Throughout his life, Mark has devoted much of his time and energy toward protecting the environment and natural resources of western Massachusetts, and believes that WMPLA is uniquely suited to conserve and enhance the quality of public lands in the region.

Mark Jester
PITTSFIELD -- Officially a Republican for only four months, Mark Jester believes he has long subscribed to the GOP's viewpoints. In June, Jester became a registered Republican in order to run as his new party's nominee in the upcoming 3rd Berkshire District special election. "I've always been an independent," he said in a recent interview with Eagle editors. "But, I've always had a conservative streak, always had that Republican feel." The Pittsfield real estate agent and avid sportsman has contemplated a 3rd Berkshire campaign for several years, but he said the time is right in his personal life to seek the state representative seat that Christopher Speranzo vacated in July. "I've been politically active most of my life and this [run for office] is almost a natural call," said Jester. Next week, the Pittsfield native and former insurance agent seeks to become the first Berkshire Republican to serve in the Statehouse since Shaun Kelly last represented the 2nd Berkshire District in 2005. Jester, along with Democrat Tricia Farley-Bouvier, Green-Rainbow Party candidate Mark C. Miller and Pam Malumphy, who is running as an independent, will square off Oct. 18. Aside from selling real estate, Jester, 51, is a consultant for the National Wildlife Federation and a 15-year president of the Berkshire County League of Sportsmen. He is the former co-owner and vice-president of the Pierce Hill Insurance Agency, a family-owned business that was sold six years ago. If elected, Jester plans to push for lower health insurance costs and a return to a 5 percent state sales tax, both of which he claims will stimulate the local and statewide economy. Jester has found many employers who can't afford to provide health insurance and many workers who can't afford to have it. "Lower health care costs will allow businesses to be more competitive to hire/keep employees," he said. "It's a cog for jobs and a cog for people to stay in their homes." In addition, Jester believes a rollback of the sales tax from 6.25 percent to 5 percent -- which the state Legislature increased in 2009 -- would boost retail sales. However, he was unsure where to cut the state budget in order to offset the loss of the tax revenue. Jester also personally favors the renovation of both Taconic and Pittsfield high schools, rather than building a new Taconic and eventually revamping Pittsfield High. The city is currently seeking state funding for a yet-to-be determined project for the Taconic campus. As for casino gambling, he favors only one being built -- in House Speaker Robert DeLeo's backyard. "If the speaker wants it so bad, put it in his district and let him handle the issues associated with casinos," Jester said.
