Pittsfield – Senator Benjamin B. Downing (D- Pittsfield) will visit Charlemont on Monday, January 24th from 4-6pm for his first Coffee & Conversation event of 2011.
Each year Downing hosts ten Coffee & Conversation events – open public forums in rotating towns across his Berkshire, Hampshire and Franklin Senate District. After Charlemont, Downing will hold similar events in the communities of Worthington, New Ashford, Lenox, North Adams, Monroe, Middlefield, Lee, Lanesborough and Adams on Monday evenings throughout 2011.
On January 24th, Downing’s Coffee & Conversation will take place at the Charlemont Inn, located at 107 Main Street (Route 2, Mohawk Trail) in Charlemont. During that time, Downing will provide free coffee and pastries 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.
