Mayor Morse and State Senator Lesser to Hold Discussion With Elected Officials and Millennials

On Monday, April 11th at 2:30 pm, Mayor Alex Morse of Holyoke and Massachusetts State Senator Eric Lesser of the First Hampden and Hampshire District will be holding a round table discussion in Conference Room 303 of the Kittredge Center at Holyoke Community College. Elected officials of Western Massachusetts and student leadership at HCC will sit down to discuss topics that the millennials in Holyoke care most deeply about. The mayor, city councilors, state representatives, and state senators will all have a chance to hear from an up-and-coming generation about what they care about and what they as elected officials can do to address these issues.

Senator Lesser has held other events similar to this across Massachusetts. He states, "Holyoke is a city on the rise, and young people are an essential part of its energy, innovation, and future. That's why i'm looking forward to bringing the Senate's Millennial Engagement Initiative to Holyoke Community College, where we can hear directly from Holyoke's young people about the issues most important to them."

Mayor Alex Morse, elected at the age of 22, believes this is a great opportunity for students and young professionals to become engaged in the issues they are most passionate about. “I am looking forward to hearing from Holyoke’s young people about the issues that matter to them. It is so important to have young people engaged in the issues of our city, our state, and our country, and both Senator Lesser and I believe this talented generation can really make an impact.”
