Mayoral Candidate Marty Walsh announces additional
"Monday's with Marty" events: Eastie on August 26.
Series of Neighborhood-based Town Hall Meetings to be held on Mondays though
The Marty Walsh for Mayor campaign continues to fan out across the City this
summer, staging a series of open Town Hall Meetings with residents. These
events, designed to be an opportunity for the candidate to listen to voters
about their concerns, are organized around neighborhoods, and are free and open
to the public. All events take place 8 – 9 p.m. Each Town Hall will be moderated
by Erin O’Brien, a professor in the Public Policy Department at UMass Boston.
Mondays with Marty has already visited Dorchester, Back Bay, Jamaica Plain,
Roslindale and West Roxbury. Upcoming events are listed below.
August 12, Charlestown Town Hall Meeting, Bunker Hill Post 26 American Legion,
26 Adams St.
August 26 East Boston Town Hall Meeting, East Boston Yacht Club, 0 Rice
September 9 Roxbury Town Hall Meeting, Haley House, 12 Dade St.
(We’re skipping August 19 for a Main Streets forum, and September 2 because it
is Labor Day.)
Said Rep. Walsh, “These events have been a great learning experience for me. I
am enjoying the back-and-forth, and gaining a deeper understanding of the unique
set of issues each neighborhood faces, in addition to the concerns all
Bostonians share. I have prided myself on always being accessible, and I will
continue to be accessible. I will commit that if elected, “Mondays with Marty”
will continue in some form.”
The original dispatch included the wrong
date. The correct date is Monday, August 26.
