  • Regionalize and Revitalize: The Way Forward for the North Shore

    Thank you to Bob Bradford, Rob Lutts, BillTinti, and all of the staff and Board membersthat help make the North Shore Chamber apowerful voice for economic prosperity forour region. And congratulations to thisyears award recipients. Im now in myeighth year as Mayor and I appreciate andvalue the work that the Chamber and all ofyou do to enhance the places here you liveand work. Id like to touch upon how wemight unify to improve our North Shoreregion even more.

    Earlier today I was part of a group ofMassachusetts Mayors who met with MayorMenino to salute him and wish him well ashe prepares to leave office. Hes known as agreat urban mechanic and has been a greatleader in transforming our cities into thecenters of innovation that they must be.Mayor Menino has said that there is no hid-

    ing when youre a Mayor. Its about morethan just setting trash pick-up times; youhave to plot a positive vision for the futureof your city, and then see it through.

    The civic innovator Peter Kageyama, in hisbook For The Love of Cities, argues for thatsame thing, connecting citizens to wherethey live. Hes written that city officials arepart choreographer, part shepherd, part traf-fic cop, and part cheerleader. Tonight Iwant to talk about why we should not limitthose roles to just our own city or town.

    Let me open by making an admission thatmight be surprising to hear from the Mayorof a city: Today, no city no matter howprogressive, forward-thinking, or well man-aged it is can make it alone. No city is anisland unto itself.

    If were going to grow, then positive part-nerships with state leaders are certainlyessential. We, at the local level, deliver theservices that make a positive difference inthe daily lives of the people we represent.And we look to our partners in Boston leg-islators, agencies, and Constitutional offi-cers to support us. We need them to begood faith allies. We need them to have ourbacks. Thankfully, we have a great group ofpeople in those positions representing all ofus on the North Shore.

    Personally, I think its great when any of ourstate-wide officials have spent some time in

    local government, so they have a sense ofwhat its like on the front lines of publicservice.

    Because great cities great communities dont happen by accident. They take plan-ning. And thats because growing a robustcity is a choice. Its a choice to adopt pro-grams that cultivate new jobs and grow thetax base. Its a choice to advocate for poli-cies that encourage families, empty nesters,twenty-somethings, to move to your com-munity. Its a choice to look at the chal-lenges that come with a growing communi-ty as opportunities, and not as obstacles.And its a choice to change our outlook onthese matters. When folks tend to think ofdevelopment, they focus on more traffic,less parking instead of more jobs, morecustomers, more entrepreneurs, more rev-enues, and more homeowners.

    Great communities take planning, but theyalso take partnerships. When cities andtowns work together, with shared goals andstrategies, nothing is beyond our capabili-ties. When we set aside parochial differ-ences, partisan or personal agendas, andthat poisonous us versus them attitude,nothing is beyond our reach.

    Because, in reality, Salem isnt in competi-tion with Lynn. Beverly isnt in competi-tion with Peabody. Marblehead isnt incompetition with Danvers. For our cities togrow, our region must thrive. We need theNorth Shore region to be able to competewith Research Triangle in North Carolina,with the Midwests Quad Cities region,
