O’Connell Open Door Policy
Taunton, MA…Today Rep. Shaunna O’Connell, candidate for Mayor, promised an open-door policy as the next Mayor of Taunton. O’Connell will hold regular office hours and town hall style meetings.
“As State Representative, I have worked hard to restore people’s faith in their elected officials by always putting people first and being available. As the next Mayor, I will continue to be accountable to the people of Taunton, said O’Connell. “To strengthen two-way communication, I will regularly hold office hours as I did as State Representative. People will be able to come to me directly with their issues and concerns. I will also hold meetings to keep everyone informed on the issues confronting Taunton.
O’Connell is promising to hold regular office hours so people can meet directly with their Mayor. Office hours will be held on a weekly basis. O’Connell also plans on conducting meetings seeking input from residents on the issues confronting Taunton.
“Our veterans, seniors, and working families deserve a hands-on Mayor who puts their interests first. From the moment I wake up in the morning, I will be focused on getting results for our city and the residents. Whether it is a pothole or a problem with red tape at city hall, people can count on me. I will be available,” said O’Connell. “I know the true meaning of public service. As a lifelong resident of Taunton, I truly care about making a positive difference.”
When first running for the Massachusetts House of Representatives, O’Connell promised to be available for her constituents. She more than fulfilled that promise. Not only did she hold office hours, but O’Connell also door knocked year round to speak directly with people. She also held business community and public safety forums. She organized Safe Kids Fun Days to help educate children and parents on public safety issues.
O’Connell has also regularly visited the senior center and held luncheons for the seniors. As State Representative, she has been able to help numerous constituents with problems ranging from housing to healthcare to business issues. As the next Mayor, O’Connell looks forward to helping people with issues at the city level.
