Welcoming the New Mayors

IMG_5341

I was asked the by Collins Center at UMass Boston to join mayor Kim Driscoll of Salem for a training and orientation program for incoming mayors. I was incredibly impressed by the amount of new construction and investment at UMass Boston as well as the Collins Center, which offers professional development and training services to municipalities in Massachusetts. The Collins Center is part of the McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies at UMass. It was a very productive day with great dialogue with some outstanding new mayors, including Marty Walsh, the mayor-elect of the City of Boston.

Here I am with, from left to right, the Dean of the McCormack School, the new Mayors of Amesbury, Brockton, and Boston, Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll, the new mayors of Chicopee and Beverly, and the Executive Director of the Collins Center.

  1. It makes very good sense having Mayor Dolan help train new mayors. After all, look at the fantastic job he has done in Melrose. Our city is one to be very proud of, our city is friendly and it cares for its citizens. Our city continues to be the gem that it is because of Rob and his very hard work on our behalf. Comparing the number of hours he puts in versus his salary, I figure he makes about $1.25 and hour.
    I am very proud to say I have been a Dolan supporter and have voted for him since the very beginning! …. Melrose has its own Menino!
