“We want to do creative, fun networking events,” said Millar-Page, who encouraged members to participate in more Chamber events. “We’d love to have a diverse group of folks involved in the Chamber of Commerce.”

Millar-Page introduced Mayor Brian Arrigo, who addressed the rise in the retail economy, and the continuous growth of the city, which includes two hotels currently under construction on Revere Beach, and a family community center at the Garfield Elementary School.

“At long last, Revere is setting the pace, not lagging behind. Developments are a reality,” Mayor Arrigo said. “Revere is on a roll, absorbing some of the growth that we’ve seen in our region. Solutions will evolve from far-sighted political leadership and vibrant businesses that resist narrow-minded thinking and decision making.”

Mayor Arrigo thanked businesses for their contributions to the local community, and encouraged bold ideas that will cultivate the successful progress of Revere.
