Hartford 2010 Initiative
Press Release by Sharon Reiner

Nancy Wheeler, Metro Hartford Alliance, briefed the Marlborogh Business Association on Hartford 2010 at the business group's May 18th meeting, hosted by Richmond Library Director Nancy Woods.

According to Ms. Wheeler, Hartford 2010, modeled on the City of Boston's Crossroads Initiative, will leverage the over $1.5 billion of public and private investment in the city and bring it out to benefit the suburbs in the Hartford region. The Metro Hartford Alliance (MHA)promotes the region so it can compete as a place to live, work, and play. The MHA has relationships with 16 suburban chambers of commerce and markets the fact that the Hartford Region has one of highest educated work forces in the nation.

The Marlborough Business Association's next meeting is June 15th, 6:30pm at the Marlborough Tavern and will feature a discussion on the recently concluded legislative session in Hartford and its impact on small businesses east of the River. Also legislative issues of concern to the business community in the next session will be discussed. State Senator Mary Ann Handley and State Representative Pam Sawyer are the invited guests.

Paula Webber, Neighbor to Neighbor, Nancy Wheeler, Metro Hartford Alliance, Don Kuerner, Gateway Financial and MBA president, Deb Leonard, Marlborough Barn, and Marlborough Selectman Sharon Reiner were on hand at the May Business Association meeting to see how the Marlborough business community can benefit from the Hartford 2010 project.
