SPEED REPPING! Speak With Your Elected Officials At Tewksbury Library

Oct 30, 2019 06:53AM

Tewksbury Public Library

 The Tewksbury Public Library will be holding its first ever Speed-Repping event on Saturday, November 2, from 10am to noon.

What is exactly is “Speed Repping?” Following a format much like Speed Dating, Speed Repping provides community members five minutes to sit down with their elected officials in a one-on-one setting and ask them questions about who they are, what they do, voice concerns, and offer suggestions.

Tewksbury's federal delegation -- Senator Elizabeth Warren, Senator Ed Markey, and Congressman Seth Moulton -- will each be sending an aide to the event.

Tewksbury's state delegation -- State Senator Barry Fingeold, State Representative David Robertson, and State Representative Tram Nguyen -- will be present.

A representative from each of Tewksbury's locally elected boards and committees -- Board of Selectmen, Planning Board, Board of Health, Board of Library Trustees, Tewksbury School Committee and Shawsheen Tech School Committee -- will also be on hand, including Selectmen Chair Jay Kelly, Planning Board Chair Stephen Johnson, and Shawsheen Tech School Committee member Patricia Meuse.

How can you participate? Register for one of the two hour-long sessions --10am to 11am or 11am to noon. Please note you're strongly encouraged to speak with ALL 12 officials for 5 minutes each during the hour-long session. All participants are expected to remain civil and respectful during this event.

Register by calling librarian Robert Hayes at 978-640-4490 x 205, emailing rhayes@tewksburypl.org, or signing yourself up using the library’s online calendar of events at www.tewksburypl.org. Contact Hayes with any questions.
