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 Cheshire next Friday, November 19th.
Downing hosts Coffee & Conversation – open public forums in rotating towns across his Berkshire, Hampshire and Franklin Senate District – on ten Fridays throughout the year. This month’s event is the final Coffee & Conversation event of 2010. This year Downing visited the communities of Ashfield, Monterey, Windsor, Huntington, Rowe, Egremont, Hinsdale, Williamsburg, and Otis.
On November 19th, Downing’s Coffee & Conversation will take place at the Cheshire Community Center, located at 119 School Street in Cheshire, from 10:30am-12:00pm. During that time, Downing will provide free coffee and be available to those interested in meeting with their State Senator face-to-face.
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.
