With the Metro Boston Commonwealth Conversations tour just around the corner on Wednesday, March 4, Senator Brownsberger and Senator Linda Dorcena Forry (D-Dorchester) appeared on Boston Neighborhood Network News (BNN) to talk about the tour and to encourage folks to come out to the public events at Brighton High School at 9:00 a.m. and the town hall forum at Roxbury Community College at 6:30 p.m. This is an opportunity for you to be heard by a group of Senators on your concerns and ideas as they build an agenda for this new legislative session. You can view the segment below.
The program at Brighton High from 9:00-10:15 a.m. includes one panel presenting to the Senators about education, and a second panel highlighting the importance of Allston-Brighton as the western gateway to Boston and focuses on why transit is a key to economic and community development. Among the speakers are Alana Olsen, Executive Director of Allston Village Main Streets; Ali Carter Executive Director of Brighton Main Streets; and Marilyn Swartz-Lloyd the President and Chief Executive Officer of MASCO. The public is encouraged to share their thoughts on these and other issues during the public comment period. The evening forum at RCC from 6:30-8:30 p.m. is an open microphone format for the full program.
