FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

Representative Dykema Announces Local Office Hours

Continuing a tradition that began when she was first elected, Representative Dykema will be holding her quarterly office hours in each of the four towns of the 8th Middlesex District.  

“My local office hours give me the opportunity to hear directly from constituents about the challenges they face and the issues they’re most passionate about,” said Dykema. “These conversations shape my priorities at the State House and are essential to the work I do to effectively represent our communities.”

Residents are encouraged to stop in to their local office hours to share concerns, questions and opinions on state issues or simply to chat over a cup of coffee.

As always, if the scheduled office hours are not convenient for you, please call the office at (617) 722-2680 or email Elizabeth.Walk@mahouse.gov to set up a personal appointment either in the district or at the State House.

Dear Mr. Losch, You certainly set a high bar with your past service as our State Representative and I appreciate your comment. I understand that there may be circumstances for which a conversation in a public place is not comfortable or appropriate. If this is the case, I'm happy to arrange for a meeting at a time and location that's convenient for constituents. If you or others would like a private meeting, my office is happy to arrange for an appropriate local location.

Is it possible to meet with Representative Dykma on official business privately, within the district, rather than in a public place, or in the Boston State House? When I was State Representative, now over forty years ago, I would meet with people from my district, sometimes with someone with me, in either the office in my home, or the Holliston Town Hall. Sometimes there are issues to be discussed that are not ready for public review. There is a danger in exclusive meetings from the point of view of both sides, but there should be a means for constituents to meet with their representative without public oversight: the press, or simply voyeurs.
