MANCHESTER — Mayor Joyce Craig will kick off the first dates in a series of “community office hours” later this week, opportunities for residents to discuss issues with her outside the confines of City Hall.
The first community office hours event will take place this Saturday, March 10 at 8 a.m. at The Local Moose Cafe, 124 Queen City Avenue.
“Manchester needs to make city government more transparent and accessible to residents,” said Craig. “By holding community office hours in every ward in our city, I look forward to meeting with residents and listening to their ideas and concerns. I want to end the notion that who you know and how much money you have determines your access to City Hall.”
Craig will host community office hours throughout the year, with additional dates in various locations throughout the city to be announced at a later date. In addition, Craig will also attend Alderman Tim Baines’ Ward 3 business and community forums on Wednesday, March 7 at the Palace Theater.
While dates and times are subject to change, the current community office hour schedule beyond March 10 is as follows:
• Monday, March 19, noon, Puritan Backroom, 245 Hooksett Rd.
• Saturday March 24, 11 a.m., Currier Museum, Winter Garden Cafe, 150 Ash St.
