Here are some of Maura's successes in addressing the needs of local business:
Addressing Power Outages:
Bringing Business Into the Neighborhoods:
- During these difficult economic times, businesses need a reliable energy source. Councillor Hennigan has brought local utilities to the table to make them more accountable to local business owners. Through her efforts, the local utilities upgraded their electrical systems and put an end to annoying and costly outages that plagued business owners. The result is that many business owners are enjoying the more reliable power supply that resulted from her efforts.
- Councillor Hennigan is a regular participant and contributor to Boston's Main Streets program and believes that in order to understand the needs of local business owners you need to personally go out and listen to them and offer the services of city government. This cuts the red tape and allows the businesses to thrive and grow. Small business owners know they can count on Maura for assistance opening, expanding or moving their businesses.
