Easthampton Engages the Public Remotely During Pandemic

In the last few weeks, many business and schools have transitioned to working online during the COVID-19 pandemic. Now, local municipal leaders are using the same technology to connect with their communities. Easthampton Mayor Nicole LaChapelle and the city council are trying to engage the public through remote town meetings. Connecting Point’s Ross Lippman joins the city’s first attempt at a remote City Council meeting—and shows the efforts underway to ensure that the public still has a voice during these uncertain times.
