NASHUA – Mayor Jim Donchess may be more of a tea drinker, but he’s up to grab coffee with city residents starting next week.

Donchess is launching an “open office” where he will be available to talk with residents and voters about anything on their minds. Donchess has never been shy about meeting with people.

“Often, at City Hall, we have an open-door policy,” Donchess said.

Donchess will be at JajaBelle’s, a pastry and coffee shop located at 182 Main St., on the morning of Dec. 7 for the first of what he plans will be monthly open meetings with anyone who cares to join him.

“One of the best parts of this job is talking to the people of this city,” Donchess said.

He wants to hear residents’ concerns about the city’s current standing and he wants their ideas for how to make Nashua move in a positive direction. No appointment is necessary; people who want to take part just need to show up. It’s the type of open dialogue Donchess wants to have with people as the mayor. Donchess did hold Ward meetings in every city Ward when he was first elected, and he wants to continue meeting with people.

“I thought it was a good time to do it,” he said.

Donchess said the city’s downtown is a perfect location to have discussions about Nashua with the people who live there.

The first meeting is 8-9 a.m. Dec. 7 at JajaBelle’s.
