Come join us at the Wayside Inn on Tuesday, February 9, 2016 @ 5:30PM for our monthly meeting. This month we we will be privileged to have our State Rep, Carmine Gentile, speaking!
Representative Gentile will be discussing:
– Governor Baker’s Regional Economic Development Plan (being rolled out on 1/28/2016);
– H3178 An Act creating a legislative budget office (Legislators need to understand the actual costs to cities and towns of proposed legislation before they create new mandates);
– H234 An Act relative to innovative communities (A product of a November Tech Hub Caucus policy “Idea-a-thon” event, the new Innovative Communities Program would connect and educate Massachusetts startups and municipalities. The bill creates a new program charged with guiding startups through the purchasing process and helping them to more easily pursue local government contracts. Startups would have the opportunity to sell their technology to innovative cities and towns that have chosen to be designated as “Innovative Communities.” These civic technology solutions would allow communities to better serve residents and use resources more efficiently and effectively.)
