Assemblyman Otis to Hold “Coffee and Conversation” Events with Senator Latimer and County Legislator Catherine Parker

Three officials who represent the Larchmont, Mamaroneck and Rye communities have announced the next installments of a long-running series of public forums with County and State Officials. County Legislator Catherine Parker, State Assemblyman Steve Otis and State Senator George Latimer will jointly hold two public forums, “Coffee and Conversation with Catherine, Steve & George” in Mamaroneck and Rye. The first forum will be held in Rye on Saturday, May 31st from 9:30 to 11 AM at Ruby's Oyster Bar and Bistro and the second will be from 2 to 3:30 PM at The Nautilus Diner.

"Public events like these, are the best tool that we, as public officials, have to gather information about what specific concerns people have," stated Senator George Latimer. "When we hear from the people in forums like this, we can then advocate intelligently and effectively, knowing that we are carrying out the people's agenda that we heard first hand. I've been conducting these events regularly, in different sections of my district and on other specific state related issues, in concert with my legislative colleagues for over a decade and I look forward to continuing these efforts."

"In addition to attending community events and meetings in our district offices, these informal settings are a great way for residents to share their issues, problems and ideas," said Assemblyman Otis. "The information we gather is invaluable to us in representing the needs of Westchester residents."

"This is a great opportunity for residents to come and meet with their elected officials and give feedback about any issue on their mind," said Catherine Parker. "The information I get from those who attend these events will be very helpful and I look forward to participating in them in the future."

Interested residents are reminded that no appointment is necessary. Staff members will also be in attendance to take individual concerns or questions and facilitate any necessary follow up after the event. All offices will have informational literature available related to various state issues.

Ruby's is located at 45 Purchase Street in Rye and The Nautilus Diner is at 1240 W Boston Post Road in Mamaroneck.
