President’s Message

Dear members and friends,

As I write this, the sun is shining and there is growing optimism that winter is finally behind us and better weather is in our future.  However, let us take a moment to remember what we all just went through:  historic cold temperatures in December/January causing havoc to our public infrastructure, high tides breaking the record set in 1978, and three back-to-back Nor’easters in a span of 11 days in March causing destructive coastal flooding and heavy and wet snow inland causing widespread tree damage and power outages. It was an incredible winter for our history books and one that will live on in the memories of public works officials for a very long time.

We serve our communities with very capable hands fulfilling a critical mission each and every day.  On behalf of this Association I say a heartfelt, “Thank you”, to each and every one you for the long hours and dedication to a profession that is vital to our way of life in this great country. I also thank the many vendors that support this Association and also support our efforts in public works by making resources available especially during times of greatest need. We are all in good company.

So what do we do now?  We celebrate.  Please come to the Massachusetts Highway Association’s 125th Anniversary Gala on June 2nd to celebrate 125 years of commitment and excellence to the Public Works community.  Please be on the lookout for more information as it becomes available. The Gala committee has been hard at work planning a great night of festivities.

Again, thank you for all of your hard work and your contributions to your communities and the public works profession. I look forward to seeing you at our next meeting.

 

Sincerely,

Sean Divoll, President
