As I’ve already discussed, Governor Patrick is holding a series of town hall meetings this summer. This is an excellent idea for all kinds of reasons. (And hey, even the “experts” think so!) Most basically, it’s a really really good idea for politicians to connect directly with the people for whom they work — it should happen all the time, and it doesn’t happen nearly enough.
These town hall meetings are an excellent opportunity for real civic engagement — don’t miss them. The first one is today at 6 pm!
- Armory Park
Corner of Essex and New Liberty Streets
Here’s a map
I will be there to live-blog the event. I hope to see some of you north shore folk there as well!
