PITTSFIELD, Mass. — State Sen. Adam G. Hinds, D-Pittsfield, will host a town hall public forum on Monday, Aug. 20, from 6:30 to 8 p.m. in the upstairs meeting room of the Ralph Froio Senior Center at 330 North St.
This forum is free, open to the public and an opportunity for residents of the Berkshire, Hampshire, Franklin & Hampden Senate District to receive an update from the senator on the major achievements of the 2017-2018 formal legislative session that recessed on July 31, as well as his vision and agenda for Western Massachusetts. It is also a chance to ask questions, connect with the senator's casework managers, and make suggestions about policy initiatives for the senator's team to focus on in the coming months.
Hinds assumed office in January 2017 and just completed his freshman formal session. He represents the 52 most western communities in the Massachusetts Senate. He serves as the Senate chair of the Joint Committee on Tourism, Arts & Cultural Development, the Senate vice chair of the Joint Committee on Economic Development & Emerging Technologies, and is a member of the powerful Senate Committee on Ways & Means.
