Senator Anthony Petruccelli and Representative Aaron Michlewitz are hosting an “Open Forum” from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. at the Nazzaro Center (30 N. Bennet St.) on March 10th. They welcome everyone in the neighborhood to attend and participate in a discussion on State Issues heading into the final months of the 2009-2010 legislative session.
The elected officials will take questions on most any subject related to State issues. This may include the State’s budget priorities/cuts, taxation, education legislation, groundwater, economic development, crime, green ticket law, transportation and casinos/gambling in Massachusetts. As part of the budget, the State dictates much of the funding to neighborhood programs, including the North End Branch Library and the Greenway parks.
Both the Senator and Representative are running for re-election this November. To date, there are no opposing candidates for either position.
