Meetings To Discuss City And State Agendas

From Sam Zurier's newsletter:
Now that the election has concluded, I and your State representatives wish to hear your ideas about the City's and State's priorities.  With that in mind, I have invited Senator Gayle Goldin, Representative Edith Ajello and Representative-elect Aaron Regunberg to join me for a community meeting.  It will take place on Tuesday, December 2 at 6:30 p.m. at Nathan Bishop Middle School.  By having all of us together, we can address your concerns from both a City and Statewide perspective.  If you are interested in discussing State issues before that time, my colleague Aaron Regunberg will be holding a community forum tomorrow night (Monday, November 17) at 7:00 p.m. at Rochambeau Branch Library.  All District 4 residents are invited to come help him to frame his agenda.  If you are unable to come but wish to be part of the conversation, you can join Aaron's Facebook group.
