PITTSFIELD, Mass. — The staff of state Sen. Adam G. Hinds, D-Pittsfield, will host two community outreach events during November.

Appointments are not necessary but can be booked in advance by calling the Pittsfield office at 413-344-4561 or the Williamsburg office at 413-768-2373. These office hours provide an opportunity for those seeking assistance with state agencies or programs to speak with Hinds' constituency services staff in person. 

All residents of the senator's Berkshire, Hampshire, Franklin & Hampden Senate District are invited to participate in these sessions if they have an idea, question or comment about state government they wish to share, or if they require assistance from the senator's constituent services team. Everyone is welcome.

Hinds' district staff, A.J. Enchill and Jon Gould, hold roving office hours outside of their primary work locations once a month. Enchill is based in the senator's Pittsfield office, Gould splits his time in Pittsfield and Williamsburg.

Last year the senator's district staff traveled to 19 towns and met with hundreds of local officials and residents in Buckland, Charlemont, Chesterfield, Egremont, Florida, Goshen, Hancock, Hawley, Huntington, New Ashford, Otis, Richmond, Sandisfield, Sheffield, Shelburne, Tyringham, Westhampton, Williamsburg, and Worthington.  So far in 2019, staff office hours have been held in Adams, Alford, Blandford, Cummington, Heath, Lee, Lenox, Middlefield, Monroe, New Marlborough, Peru, Plainfield, Rowe and Windsor, while Senator Hinds has participated in public forums in Huntington, Lenox, North Adams, Pittsfield and Westhampton.
 
Those who are unable to attend these events who are seeking to interact with the senator and his staff may email him at Adam.Hinds@masenate.gov or call the offices during normal business hours, Monday through Friday. The State House office, where the budget and policy, media relations, and scheduling functions are handled, can be reached at 617-722-1625.
