MANCHESTER, NH – Continuing with her Community Office Hours initiative, Mayor Joyce Craig has announced the first several 2019 stops on the schedule during which the public is invited to join, ask questions and provide feedback.
In March of 2018 Craig initiated the rolling series of meetings, held at various community sites around the city.
“Manchester needs to make city government more transparent and accessible to residents,” Craig said in March. “By holding community office hours in every ward in our city, I look forward to meeting with residents and listening to their ideas and concerns. I want to end the notion that who you know and how much money you have determines your access to City Hall.”
Meetings are designed to create opportunities for citizens to also talk with department heads on focused topics at various locations and times.
