Pittsfield – State Senator Benjamin B. Downing (D- Pittsfield) announces today that he will convene a Town Hall Forum from 6:00pm – 7:30pm at Silvio O. Conte Community School, located at 200 West Union Street in Pittsfield, on Thursday, November 17, 2011.
Capitalizing on the success of his recent Online Town Hall Forum and the popularity of his monthly Coffee and Conversation events, Downing hopes this additional open meeting will provide access for constituents wishing to see their State Senator in an informal setting, ask questions and submit ideas. Those who do not wish to speak are also encouraged to attend and learn more about what is going on in their community and in state government.
Downing chose this date, one day after the Legislature recesses its formal sessions for the calendar year, in order to be able to provide his constituents with an overview of the Massachusetts Senate’s policy agenda to date, as well as what policy topics are expected to advance when the Legislature reconvenes formally in January.
All are welcome to attend – please save the date!
