PITTSFIELD, Mass. — U.S. Rep. Richard E. Neal will host a Town Hall forum on Friday, Sept. 15, at Berkshire Community College's Robert Boland Theater.

Doors will open at 5 p.m. and the program will begin at 5:30.

Berkshire Community College President Ellen Kennedy will be on hand to welcome visitors to campus. Following an update about Washington, D.C., constituents will have the opportunity to ask questions of the 1st Massachusetts congressman regarding federal issues.

Neal is the ranking member of the powerful Ways and Means Committee in the House of Representatives. As the top Democrat, he advocates for the preservation and strengthening of such issues as health care and Social Security, and deals with all matters of tax and trade.

Neal has represented Berkshire County since redistricting in 2012. The former Springfield mayor had represented the 2nd Mass district since 1989.
