Reception and Fundraiser:  Opportunity to Meet and Talk with Incoming State Senate President Karen Spilka

Sponsored by incoming State Senator Jo Comerford, in collaboration with Western Mass Senators Lesser, Gobi, Hinds, and Welch

When:  Tuesday, December 18, 5:30-7 pm
Where:  Samuel’s, 1000 West Columbus Ave, Springfield

What:  An opportunity to meet Senator Spilka in an intimate setting and talk about priorities for the coming session.  To understand the significance of this visit, see this statement from Tony Cignoli, public relations and political consultant:  "A few respectful thoughts about Senate President Spilka’s visit from one who has dealt with Beacon Hill for a long time. This is huge. It’s unusual and exceptional. This is an incredible opportunity, for Jo, for her constituents, for all of us who call Western Massachusetts home. This is a chance to help Jo to further cement the start of a great relationship with the President. Jo campaigned on making our voices heard in Boston, in bringing the attention of Beacon Hill Legislative Leadership to the West, beyond I-495. Karen Spilka coming here, to the district of her predecessor in the Senate Presidency now represented by Jo, will be noted by many. In politics, perception is currency.  We have an opportunity to attend the event Jo is co-hosting with strong voices for WMass, like Senator Lesser. I think that this is an opportunity for us to show the President how strongly we support Jo and her colleagues’ agenda for Western Massachusetts.  An event like this, if successful, stays ingrained in a legislative leader’s memory. I know from experience that this is the kind of effort that can make a difference in how Jo is perceived by leadership and in helping leadership understand why Jo’s priorities are what they are – because of the people she represents. I encourage you to come to this unique event if you can. Senate Presidents from the East don’t often come West. I believe that Karen Spilka’s already strong respect for Jo will be even greater when she sees the following that Jo has here."
