PITTSFIELD - State Senator Benjamin B. Downing (D- Pittsfield) announces today that his next Coffee and Conversation will be held at Dalton Town Hall (462 Main Street) on Monday, February 22 from 1:30pm to 3:30pm.
In order to be accessible to all his constituents, no matter where they live, Senator Downing hosts monthly Coffee & Conversation open forums in rotating towns across his Berkshire, Hampshire, Franklin & Hampden district.
Dalton was home to Downing’s first ever Coffee and Conversation event. He took questions from interested locals at Juice N’ Java in February of 2008, shortly after being sworn in for his second term. Eight years and 68 Coffee and Conversations later, Downing has held at least one open forum in each of the 52 communities he represents.
All are welcome to join Senator Downing and his district staff during these events to pose a question, submit a comment or pitch an idea regarding state government. Downing provides free coffee and refreshments for those who attend.
