PITTSFIELD, Mass. (AP) - Michael Bloomberg is running for the Massachusetts Legislature.

No, not that Michael Bloomberg.

This Michael Bloomberg is a 2008 graduate of Pittsfield High School and a 2012 graduate of the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. He confirms to The Berkshire Eagle (https://bit.ly/1VMKiDJ ) that he plans to challenge for the Democratic nomination for the 3rd Berkshire District House seat currently held by state Rep. Tricia Farley-Bouvier.

He says he is related to former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg. They are first cousins, once removed - his father and the former mayor are cousins.

Farley-Bouvier is running for re-election to the seat she has held since 2011.

Pittsfield City Councilor Christopher Connell is running for the seat as an independent.
