Middlesex Community College will observe Constitution and Citizenship Day with a special presentation, titled “Making Government Work Better,” by Suzanne Bump, Massachusetts State Auditor, from 12:30 to 1:45 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 17, in MCC’s Federal Building Assembly Room, 50 Kearney Square, Lowell. Admission is free and open to the public.

Subtitled “Accountability, Planning and Oversight in Massachusetts,” Bump, a staunch advocate of honesty and accountability in state government, will discuss her work, highlighting recent events and exploring what they might mean for the future.

Auditor Bump is the 25th Auditor of the Commonwealth and the first female to serve in this role in the state’s history. She is a graduate of Boston College and Suffolk University School of Law. Since being elected to office in 2010, Bump has made it her mission to make government work better – meaning making government more effective, more efficient, more accountable, and more transparent.

Constitution Day, or Citizenship Day, is a federal observance that recognizes the adoption of the United States Constitution and those who have become U.S. citizens. It is normally observed on Sept. 17, the day the U.S. Constitutional Convention signed the Constitution in 1787 in Philadelphia.

This program is co-sponsored by MCC’s Center for Leadership & Engagement, and the Paralegal Student Association. To learn more about Constitution Day at Middlesex, contact Sheri Denk at denks@middlesex.mass.edu.
