Alderman Dennis Sullivan to hold neighborhood mobile office hours next three Saturdays
Sullivan will make stops across city to hear from residents
Somerville – October 14th – Alderman at Large Dennis Sullivan held his mobile neighborhood office hours across the city for the next three Saturdays. He’s held more than 125 office hours since being elected to the board to meet and learn from residents and share ideas.
Sullivan will make the following stops as part of his fall office hours:
Saturday, Oct. 19: outside the East Branch library on lower Broadway at 10am, followed by the Union Square Dunkin’ Donuts at 11am
Saturday, Oct. 26: outside Dunkin’ Donuts at the corner of Highland Ave. and Central Street at 10am, followed by the Winter Hill Post Office at 11am
Saturday, Nov. 2: in the heart of Ball Square at 9am, followed by Statue Park in Davis Square at 10am, and concluding in Teele Square at 11am
“I believe that municipal government works better when we listen and that’s why I bring my office hours to street corners and neighborhoods across the city to talk to residents, gain insight from there, and talk about how we move forward together,” said Sullivan. “Somerville has made great strides in transportation, the environment and smart growth development, but there is still much work to be done. I’m looking forward to meeting with residents and talking about what the future holds for our community,” said Sullivan.
Sullivan takes the mobile office — a banner and table — twice per year to each one of the city’s seven wards, and once during the colder months at either a local grocery store or library. Sullivan argues that while nothing can replace “face to face discussion,” he posts updates on social media as well.
Office hours are weather permitting. If they are rescheduled they will be announced via @aldsullivan on twitter and via facebook.
