Mayor Petty to Lead Neighborhood Walk in Worcester

Tuesday, July 23, 2013

 

Mayor Joseph M. Petty hopes to hear from constituents.

On Tuesday, Mayor Joseph M. Petty will be joined by District 4 City Councilor Sarai Rivera and State Representative Mary S. Keefe on a neighborhood walk. The walk will begin at 4 pm.

“This walk will give me the chance to meet the people I serve on their turf and allow me to hear their concerns firsthand, work to solve problems quickly, and gather suggestions on how we can serve our residents and businesses better,” said Mayor Petty.

Joining Mayor Petty, Councilor Rivera, and Representative Keefe will be members of city departments including inspectional services, economic development, public works, and the police.

“Walking our streets and neighborhood together can be real eye opener and inspiration to work together and keep striving for improvement,” Representative Mary Keefe said about the upcoming walk. Representative Keefe represents the 15th Worcester district, which includes Chandler Street.

Mayor’s walks are opportunities for residents and businesses to express to the elected officials things they are proud of and issues that require more attention.

“Chandler Street has flourished and has evolved into a thriving business, medical, and residential area,” City Councilor Sarai Rivera, who represents the district, said. “We are excited to showcase all the good work and partnerships that exist in this area of the city. From EVO, the home of Worcester’s 2013 Best Chef, to Horizon Acupuncture, Chandler Street continues to prosper and enhance the vision of our city.”

The walk will begin at 237 Chandler Street at The Martin Luther King Jr. Business Empowerment Center. The walk will proceed from a meeting point in the nearby Dewey Street Parking Lot.

“Mayor Mariano held the first Mayor’s walk during his administration and it has proven to be an effective resource to see and hear directly what is happening on the streets,” Mayor Petty said. “Chandler Street is a thriving small business corridor and a great asset to the city. I look forward to hearing everyone’s questions, concerns, and comments about the quality of life in their neighborhood.”
