Downing to host Coffee & Conversation at Dalton CRA on June 28th
June 17, 2013

PITTSFIELD – Fifty towns and two cities -- spanning across four counties -- is a lot of ground to cover, which is why State Senator Benjamin B. Downing (D- Pittsfield) convenes up to ten open forum sessions throughout his Berkshire, Hampshire, Franklin & Hampden Senate District each year. 
This month Downing returns to the community where he hosted his very first Coffee & Conversation event in February 2008, the Town of Dalton. Join him in the Conference Room of the Dalton CRA, located at 400 Main Street, on Friday, June 28th from 2:00-4:00 PM for his June Coffee & Conversation event. 
All are welcome to join the Senator and his district staff to pose a question, submit a comment or pitch an idea regarding state government. Downing provides free coffee and refreshments for those who attend.
To date Downing has convened Coffee & Conversation events in every town in his district, as well as larger Town Hall forums in Pittsfield, North Adams and Great Barrington. He has also hosted two Online Town Hall forums via social media. Additionally, the Senator’s district office, located at 7 Bank Row, Suite 307 in downtown Pittsfield is open Monday through Friday during normal business hours. Walk-ins are welcome!
