Kerry hosting office hours in Gloucester this afternoon

BOSTON – U.S. Sen. John Kerry announced his staff will hold additional office hours across Massachusetts to discuss local issues, offer assistance on individual cases, and answer any and all questions. They are in Gloucester and Rockport this morning.

“It’s not always easy for folks in Massachusetts to make the trek to my Boston office so we’re heading across the state to help out everyone we can in any way we can,” said Sen. Kerry. “Whether it’s providing additional resources or putting folks in touch with federal agencies – we’ll be there to listen and help.” 

 Office hours” has been a longstanding, successful Kerry constituent service initiative. In 2009, Senator Kerry and his staff held office hours in all 351 cities and towns in Massachusetts. This year, Senator Kerry’s staff has held office hours in 102 different locations throughout the state and tomorrow’s meetings will be a continuation of this effort. Future schedules will be available at kerry.senate.gov.

Sen. Kerry’s staff will be available to meet one-on-one with constituents today until noon in Rockport Town Hall's Conference Room A, and from 1 to 3 p.m. in Gloucester City Hall's first-floor Council Conference Room.
