GOVERNOR PATRICK AND LIEUTENANT GOVERNOR MURRAY ANNOUNCE PITTSFIELD OFFICE HOURS BEGINNING JULY 24

Governor’s staff will be available to meet with constituents once a month in Pittsfield

PITTSFIELD - Tuesday, July 3, 2012 – Governor Deval Patrick and Lieutenant Governor Timothy Murray today announced staff will be available to meet with constituents once a month beginning Tuesday, July 24.

Walk-in hours will be from 10:00 a.m. – 3:00 p.m. every fourth Tuesday of the month in the Pittsfield State Office Building, Room 102, 333 East Street in Pittsfield.

“I serve as Governor of the whole Commonwealth,” said Governor Patrick. “And that means connecting with residents directly as much as possible. That’s what this new office in Berkshire County is about.”

“Governor Patrick and I have shown our commitment to every region of the Commonwealth,” said Lieutenant Governor Murray. “I look forward to visiting the Pittsfield office and hearing from constituents directly.”

The program is a pilot and will be adjusted in the coming months depending on demand.

In January 2008, Governor Patrick re-opened the Governor’s Western Massachusetts Office in Springfield. Open on a full-time basis, the office addresses constituent concerns and provides a vital link between the State House and the western part of the state. The Pittsfield office hours will provide increased access for constituents in Berkshire County.
