Cindy Bass, Councilwoman for the 8th District, announced last week, that she would begin regularly holding “Coffee with the Councilwoman” on a rotating basis throughout the District in order to speak directly with constituents as she, and her staff, actively work to open a district office.


Very much like holding “office hours, “Coffee with the Councilwoman” will be an opportunity for local residents to spend time talking to Councilwoman Bass in their local coffee shop, diner, or restaurant.


“At this time in our City—and in our nation—citizens feel disconnected from their elected officials,” said Bass. “My peers and I were elected, in part, to change that culture and mentality and we plan to do so.”


Bass added, “We aren’t waiting to open a district office in order to physically be in the community; the people can’t wait.”


“For some people, getting to City Hall from the Northwest is a hardship,” said Bass. “We need to make government more accessible to the people who put us here. I am excited at the prospect of getting out and meeting the people I represent in City Hall and working to get results for them.”


A constituent service liaison from her office will accompany Councilwoman Bass to each “Coffee with the Councilwoman” to ensure quick and efficient handling of issues.


The first “Coffee with the Councilwoman” will be held this Friday, January 13th, from 3 PM to 5 PM. These events will be held regularly, and will rotate days, times, and locations throughout the district.


Cindy Bass, is the Councilwoman for the 8th Council District in Philadelphia City Council. She is a dedicated public servant and former Senior Policy Advisor on Urban and Domestic policy to Congressman Chaka Fattah.
