Gov. Deval Patrick promotes 'Partners in Public Service' program with insider's look into state budget | masslive.com
'The Governor's Springfield Office is an important means for us to stay engaged with Western Mass communities and they with us,' said Patrick in a press release. 'This initiative builds on that platform to encourage constituents and stakeholders to connect with their government.' 'Partners in Public Service' was first conceived following two successful focus group sessions last spring that brought together a host of non-profit leaders from the greater Hampden County region.
