Senator Lesser visited the Ludlow Senior Center Friday, Oct. 16 to hold “office hours,” giving area residents the opportunity to speak with the Senator about the issues that matter most to them.
“The most important thing I can do as a Senator is to listen,” Senator Lesser said. “These office hours give me a great opportunity to hear from constituents about the issues impacting them and their communities, which are all things I’ll bring back with me to the State House.”
Topics of discussion raised during Senator Lesser’s Ludlow visit included taxes, cost of health insurance and the importance of completing repairs to the East Street Bridge, which serves as a crucial route to Wing Memorial Hospital in Palmer and connects area residents to the MassPike and the greater Springfield area.
Earlier this year, Senator Lesser joined with Senator Anne Gobi and Representative Thomas Petrolati to secure the Massachusetts Department of Transportation’s approval of $1 million in state and federal money for the repair of the bridge.
“Funding for repairs to the East Street bridge is great news for the people of Ludlow, and I will continue to work diligently with MassDOT to ensure that the project is completed in as timely a manner as possible,” Senator Lesser said.
