On Saturday, October 26th from 3:30 - 5:00 pm, the Friends of the New Salem Public Library will be sponsoring a “Listening Session” with our Massachusetts State Senator, Jo Comerford, and our Massachusetts State Representative, Susannah Whipps, at Swift River School on Wendell Road. All residents of New Salem, Wendell and other neighboring towns represented by the two local legislators are invited to attend, including students in grades five and above.
Senator Comerford and Representative Whipps will each have the opportunity to introduce themselves and give brief summaries of their work in the state legislature. The audience will then be able to ask questions with the session being facilitated by Mary-Ann Palmieri, Co-Chair of the Friends, and Sharon Tracy, Executive Director of Quabbin Mediation.
This will be a wonderful chance to meet and interact with our local legislators and to talk about issues and concerns of the residents of the North Quabbin region. For additional information, call 978-544-2611.
