State Rep. Wolf

State Rep. Alice K. Wolf is holding office hours in Cambridge from 10:30 to 11:30 a.m. Tuesday, legislative aide Emily B. Szargowicz said.

“Residents are encouraged to attend to speak to Rep. Wolf about legislative concerns or to discuss a problem with a state agency or department,” Szargowicz said Thursday.

While there were no specific topics on which Wolf is seeking input, Szargowicz said, “As the House chairwoman for the Elder Affairs Committee, Rep. Wolf is always interested in hearing from constituents, both elderly and young, about any issues they may have concerning the needs of elders.”

But Wolf is available to talk on any issue, Szargowicz clarified:

“The office hours in general, serve as a tool for us to reach out and meet people living in the district and listen to any and all concerns they may have. Whether it be about health care, housing or any issue in between, Rep. Wolf likes to let her constituents know that she is willing to help.”

The Tuesday office hours are set for the North Cambridge Senior Center, 2050 Massachusetts Ave., Porter Square. There are also office hours scheduled for 5 to 6 p.m. Oct. 12 at City Hall, 795 Massachusetts Ave., Central Square.

In the newsletter sent via e-mail Thursday, Wolf highlighted, among others, the following topics:

Those driving east on Memorial Drive will be diverted off on Magazine Street, then to Granite Street and back out to the rotary.
