Free Coffee & Open Conversation with Your State Senator
Pittsfield - To further his goal of being fully accessible to constituents residing in all 48 communities of his district, state Senator Benjamin B. Downing (D-Pittsfield) will bring his Coffee & Conversation program to the outer reaches of the district and visit Huntington on Friday, April 16th.
Downing hosts Coffee & Conversation – open public forums in rotating towns across his Berkshire, Hampshire and Franklin Senate District – on ten Fridays throughout the year. After Huntington, Downing plans to bring the series to Rowe, Egremont, Hinsdale, Williamsburg, Otis and Cheshire.
While Downing’s community relations and constituent services hub is his 7 North Street district office in Pittsfield, he recognizes that serving the largest, most rural district in the Massachusetts Senate presents communication challenges. The Pittsfield office is open during normal business hours Monday through Friday; walk-ins are always welcome.
On April 16th, Downing’s Coffee & Conversation will take place at the Huntington Public Library, located at 7 East Main Street from 2:00pm – 3:30pm. During that time, Downing will provide free coffee and be available for open, unscripted conversation to those interested in meeting with their state Senator face-to-face.
