State Rep. Dan Cullinane Announces Weekly “Dan in the District” Office Hours Across 12th Suffolk District

State Representative Dan Cullinane is today announcing an aggressive plan to hold weekly “Dan in the District” community office hours at five convenient locations throughout the district every Friday, beginning March 7th. This initiative is part of Representative Cullinane’s on-going commitment to enable residents of the 12th Suffolk District to have consistent and direct access to meet with him personally about their concerns and ideas without having to commute into the State House.

“Many people who care very deeply about our communities, who have great ideas and observations, do not have the time or flexibility to visit the State House, to make a phone call during the work day, or to attend a monthly community meeting.” Cullinane said. “During the campaign, I made a promise to the people of Dorchester, Mattapan, Hyde Park, and Milton to make accessibility for all one of my top priorities. I believe this aggressive weekly schedule blocking twelve hours to meet with residents at five different locations throughout the district every Friday shows that commitment.”

“There are a lot of great ideas out there. There are people walking our neighborhood streets each day who see things that could be fixed or improved. And there is always plenty of feedback on what government can be doing better in the community. But when residents keep their ideas and feedback to themselves the whole neighborhood misses out,” Cullinane continued. “This is just one additional way I hope to engage and empower residents to take an active role in improving the district. I look forward to having conversations with folks as they grab their morning coffee, stop for lunch, or pick up their dinner.”

The following is the schedule Representative Cullinane will be keeping each Friday beginning Friday, March 7, 2014.
