Lieutenant governor to visit Peabody

PEABODY — Beacon Hill is coming to Peabody. Or more precisely, some of the state’s movers and shakers will be in Peabody to talk and to listen.

If you’ve got a complaint or suggestion, the time to express it will be Tuesday at 10:05 a.m. in City Hall’s Wiggin Auditorium during a meeting of Lt. Gov. Tim Murray’s Municipal Affairs Coordinating Cabinet. Expected along with the lieutenant governor are four of Gov. Deval Patrick’s key advisers.

Mayor Ted Bettencourt will host the event.

According to a press release from Murray’s office, the meeting is meant to “highlight new and innovative developments in state and local government and promote resources and investments in cities and towns.”

“These cabinet meetings have successfully engaged local officials as we deliver critical resources and services for municipalities,” Murray said in a statement.

Bettencourt has expressed an eagerness to discuss the needs of the city with state officials.

“I look forward to a very productive dialogue,” he said in a written statement.

Among those expected to attend are Transportation Secretary Richard Davey, Deputy Commissioner of Revenue and Municipal Affairs Chairman Robert Nunes, Housing and Economic Development Assistant Secretary Jen Murphy, and Information Technology Division Municipal Liaison Tim Sullivan.

The Peabody event is part of a series of such meetings at communities across the commonwealth, from Taunton to more obscure destinations like Buckland.
