At-Large Springfield City Councilor Jesse Lederman visited the State House Tuesday for meetings with State Officials and Legislative Caucus Staffers to learn more about resources available for the City and discuss local initiatives.
“It was a great opportunity to spend this time building relationships and learning more about the resources available for our city, as well as discussing initiatives important to me and the residents of Springfield,” said Lederman “I think it is important for our local elected officials to have a strong presence in Boston advocating for Springfield and supporting our state legislative delegation.”
The visit was coordinated by the Office of State Senator Eric Lesser, who stated,
"I'm grateful for Councilor Lederman's friendship and partnership. Close collaboration between state and municipal government is essential, and I'm grateful he took the time to travel to the Statehouse and connect with our Commonwealth's agencies and leaders. I look forward to continuing our work together on behalf of the residents of Springfield and our broader state."
Lederman met with staffers for the Gateway Cities Caucus, the Executive Director of the MassInc Gateway Cities Initiative, the Office of the State Auditor and officials with the Executive Office of Public Safety and the Division of Local Services of the Department of Revenue.
