Breakfast with Governor Baker

Breakfast with the Governor -Flyer

CLICK HERE to reserve your spot.

Governor Charlie Baker has accepted an invitation from the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce to be the keynote speaker at a Chamber breakfast on Thursday, June 13. The event will be held at the Gloucester House Restaurant, located at 63 Rogers Street in downtown Gloucester, beginning at 7:30 AM.

Governor Baker was sworn in for a second term as the 72nd Governor of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts on January 3, 2019.

Governor Baker has used public private partnerships to spur economic development, reformed the state’s regulatory environment, and delivered critical tax relief by doubling the Earned Income Tax Credit.

Governor Baker has put Massachusetts at the forefront of fighting the opioid and heroin epidemic, doubling spending on prevention, education, treatment, and recovery and signing two major bills that have served as models for other states. In recognition of Governor Baker’s leadership in this area, the North Shore Health Project recently presented to him their 10th Annual Community Health Activist Award.

Confronted with the challenges of rising energy costs and a changing climate, Governor Baker has taken nation-leading steps to diversify the Commonwealth’s energy portfolio, safeguard residents, municipalities and businesses from the impacts of climate change, and secure progress toward greenhouse gas reduction targets.

Governor Baker has spearheaded long overdue reforms at the MBTA that have led to significant improvements to operations and finances, and put the T on track to spend more than $8 billion on infrastructure over the next five years to improve riders’ experience.

Prior to his election, Governor Baker was a highly successful leader of complex business and government organizations, serving as a cabinet secretary to Governors William Weld and Paul Cellucci, and leading Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, as CEO, from the brink of bankruptcy to one of the nation’s highest ranked health care providers.

Tickets for the June 13 Chamber of Commerce breakfast with Governor Baker are available at $35 per person. Those wishing to attend may contact the Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce at 978-283-1601 to reserve seating.  People may also register online by visiting capeannchamber.com.

The Chamber wishes to thank the accounting firm Johnson O’Connor Feron & Carucci LLP and RE/MAX Advantage Real Estate for being Silver Sponsors for this event. Anyone interested in becoming a sponsor should email Kerry McKenna at the Chamber at kerry@capeannchamber.com.
