State House Speaker Salvatore F. DiMasi, D-Boston, will be the next guest at Rep. Jay Kaufman’s public policy series, Open House. It will offer the audience a rare chance to hear directly from the top legislative leader in the 160-member House of Representatives. DiMasi will discuss the challenges of balancing a $28 billion budget in a recessionary economy.
What will be the impact on local services? What kind of educational programs might be cut under such a scenario? How quickly can we turn things around? How does the Presidential race determine our choices? The forum, “A Conversation with the Speaker,” will be held Thursday, Oct. 16 at 7:30 PM. at the Depot Building, 13 Depot Square, in Lexington Center.
