State leaders host community forums around the Commonwealth in May.

A decline in state revenue is forcing us all to confront difficult decisions around what kind of government we want and how best to pay for it; at the same time, stories of waste and abuse threaten the public’s confidence that tax dollars are spent smartly.

Between now and the end of May, the Governor, Lieutenant Governor, and senior officials from the administration will host forums with local residents and local officials in thirty-six cities and towns on the choices facing the Commonwealth in the current economic climate. These conversations will provide residents a chance to ask questions, offer suggestions and engage with their government and their neighbors on these issues.

Forum dates, times and locations can be found at: > Key Priorities > Civic Engagement & Strong Communities > Community Forums on Choices and Priorities
