Mayor’s Coffee Hour for Back Bay and Beacon Hill

Thanks to Mayor Michelle Wu for a successful coffee hour at the Commonwealth Avenue Mall on Tuesday morning. These annual coffee hours are a great way to see the people we rely on in City Hall in person, to share concerns with them, and to learn more about various city departments. Thanks as well to Rep. Jay Livingstone and City Councilor Sharon Durkan for being there.
