Dear Commissioner Palmer,
As you know, ESPN announced today that they will be laying-off employees in areas and job descriptions "across the board," according to spokesman Mike Soltys. I understand that the reduction will also include positions eliminated by attrition.
As one of the State Senators representing the city of Bristol, I am requesting that you immediately dispatch your Rapid Response Team to address the needs of the displaced workers as a result of the layoffs.
In addition, I would like my office to be notified of any meetings taking place between ESPN and the Department of Labor so that I can participate in helping those who will be losing their employment.
I am hopeful that we can work together to help re-locate these workers in new jobs as soon as possible.
Please do not hesitate to contact me if I can be of assistance for you or your office.
State Senator, Bristol
