Meet Your Legislators, Hear Noted Senator at MANS&C Day

Members and guests will have the opportunity to talk with their state legislators and hear an address by State Sen. Steven C. Panagiotakos at MANS&C Day at the State House on April 30. The event will be held in the building’s historic Great Hall.

Panagiotakos is chairman of the powerful Senate Ways and Means Committee and is one of the state’s most influential political leaders. The Lowell Democrat is a graduate of Phillips Academy in Andover and has a long history of community and political involvement, particularly in education.

Registration for MANS&C Day will begin at 10:45 a.m. Starting at 11 a.m., guests will be able to visit their senators and representatives in their State House offices. Panagiotakos will speak at a luncheon at noon that will include a performance by students of Walnut Hill School, an arts high school in Natick. Tours of the State House will be offered after lunch.

Students are welcome to attend with guests and to join the meetings with legislators.

“In these difficult economic times, it is imperative that we sit down with our state legislators and share our concerns,” MANS&C Legislative Counsel John J. Spillane said. “MANS&C Day offers us the unique opportunity to explain how the economic downturn is affecting our members, the impact our institutions have in their local communities and how we can continue to assist our communities during these mutually challenging economic times.”
