Pittsfield – Senator Benjamin B. Downing (D- Pittsfield) is bringing his monthly Coffee & Conversation program to Lanesborough on Monday, July 18, 2011.
Each year Downing hosts ten Coffee & Conversation events – open public forums in rotating towns across his Berkshire, Hampshire and Franklin Senate District. While there is no Coffee & Conversation scheduled for August, Downing hopes to hold similar events in Monroe, Goshen and Adams on Monday evenings this fall.
On July 18th, Downing’s Coffee & Conversation will take place in the 2nd Floor Community Room of Lanesborough Town Hall, located at 83 North Main Street, from 4-6pm. During that time, Downing will provide free coffee and refreshments 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.
