Town Hall Meetings with our new Mayor Elect Marty Walsh
Mayor Elect Marty Walsh will be hosting a series of town hall meetings to begin the public conversation between residents and the transition team to begin to plan and project changes in 2014.
Future Boston is encouraging our community members to come out to voice your opinions and show support for the changes that we as a people would like to see take place within our city. If you cannot attend the public sessions you are more than welcome to submit your thoughts and feedback.
We hope to see you there and see some of your live tweets from the event as well! #activateBOS
