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 Franklin County community of Rowe on Friday, May 21st.
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 Rowe, Downing plans to visit 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 May 21st, Downing’s Coffee & Conversation will take place at the Rowe Elementary School, located at 86 Pond Road, from 3:30pm – 5:00pm. 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.
