SPRINGFIELD, Mass. (WWLP) – Senator Ed Markey has postponed three events he planned to attend in Springfield and Ludlow on Saturday.
At 11:00 a.m., Markey was going to be at the Springfield Post Office on Main Street and join postal service workers to discuss the next round of coronavirus relief for USPS.
He also will not be attending a Women of the NAACP Springfield’s Operation Count rally at the Springfield of Hope Church of God in Christ on Alden Street. The event encourages residents to fill out their U.S. census.
Finally, Markey will be delaying his visit to Ludlow, joining Sheriff Nick Cocchi to discuss expanding access to medication-assisted treatment (MAT) as the state continues to fight opioid overdoses.
It is unknown if or when he plans to reschedule the events.
