Are you all revved up and excited for the 375th anniversary of Boston? At least there is a balloon ride in the Park!!!
If I'm elected (and if not, I hope other counselors and/or the mayor will take the ball and run with it) I will try and start a movement to put together a coalition of business and civic leaders to get ready for Boston 400! We need to put a plan into place now, give our citizens a goal to work towards to make Boston the best city in the world in that time.
We need to have a master plan for where the city is going and how it will get there. Successful groups and corporations are always looking ahead. We need to set goals, and enact a plan to get it done. This plan should include:
