Hello, I’m Rick Sullivan, Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) and this coming Earth Day, I invite you to talk with the EEA team and me directly about everything energy and environment-related that the Patrick Administration has accomplished. EEA will host its first Twitter Town Hall discussion on Earth Day, April 22, 2014 at 2 p.m. Governor Patrick has been a leader on clean energy and environmental issues, and this occasion is your opportunity to share ideas and questions about our initiatives, accomplishments and policies.

Participate in the online chat on Twitter by following @massEEA and using the hashtag #EarthDayMA. My team and I will offer an overview of EEA’s successes and some of the exciting new initiatives underway right now. The agenda for the Twitter Town Hall includes a 5 minute discussion of the energy and environment accomplishments during the Patrick Administration, followed by 25 minutes of open time for follow-up questions and idea sharing.

Participants are encouraged to submit questions beginning now in the comment section of this blog post as well as to our @massEEA Twitter account, as due to anticipated participation, not all questions may be answered immediately – but we’ll do our best to recognize as many contributions as we can.

If you are unfamiliar with EEA and the work we do, please take this opportunity visit our website at http://www.mass.gov/eea. We look forward to hearing from you! EEA_Town_Hall
