State Senator Adam G. Hinds (D-Pittsfield) announces that next week his district aides are scheduled to visit Chester and Lanesborough for their monthly staff office hours on Wednesday, September 18th.
All residents of his 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!
Since early in 2017 Senator Hinds has directed his district team, A.J. Enchill and Jon Gould, to hold roving office hours outside of their primary work locations once a month, in an effort to increase office accessibility for every constituent, no matter where they reside. Enchill is based in the Senator’s Pittsfield office, Gould splits his time between 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.
This month the Senator’s staff will be available to meet with constituents and local officials from 11:00am until 1:00pm on Wednesday, September 18th in Chester and Lanesborough at the following locations:
• Chester Town Hall Auditorium, located at 15 Middlefield Road; and
• Lanesborough Town Office Community Room, located at 83 North Main Street.
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.
