State Senator Jason Lewis was recently joined by Melrose Mayor Robert Dolan and Melrose Chamber of Commerce Executive Director Joan Ford Mongeau on a “Main Street Small Business Walk” to meet some of Melrose’s entrepreneurs and small businesspeople, and to hear directly from them the challenges that their businesses face and how state & local government can continue to be a productive partner for them. Senator Lewis heard positive and thoughtful feedback from the owners of these popular small businesses, and thanks them for their time and valuable insight.
Among the members of the Melrose business community with whom Senator Lewis, Mayor Dolan, and Executive Director Mongeau spoke were the Halligan family who own Miter Biter, Melrose Chamber of Commerce Board of Directors President & Edward Jones financial advisor Christopher Cinella, Beacon Hill Wine & Gourmet owner Rebecca Beraldi, and Madison Ave of Melrose boutique consignment owner Joanne Cotton.
