Governor Charlie Baker, Federal Reserve Bank of Boston CEO to Headline SRC Outlook 2018

February 8, 2018

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., February 8, 2018–  Massachusetts Governor Charlie Baker will be the keynote speaker at the Springfield Regional Chamber’s annual Outlook luncheon on March 9, 2018 from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 pm. at the MassMutual Center, 1277 Main Street Springfield.

Presented by Health New England, the Springfield Regional Chamber Outlook is the area’s largest and premier legislative event, which attracts more than 700 guests and presents expert speakers on local, state and federal issues. The event is also sponsored by Platinum Sponsors Eastern States Exposition, Eversource, MassMutual Financial Group, MGM Springfield; and United Personnel, with program/reception sponsors Comcast, Mercy Medical Center, Business West and The Republican, and sound sponsor Zasco Productions.

Governor Charlie Baker was inaugurated as the 72nd Governor of Massachusetts on January 8th, 2015. Since taking office, he has been making Massachusetts a great place to live, work and raise a family while delivering a customer-service oriented state government that is as hard working as the people of the Commonwealth.

Upon taking office, Governor Baker worked to close two budget gaps worth more than $2 billion without raising taxes, while bolstering local aid for our schools and communities, investing in a more reliable public transportation system and prioritizing funds to fight the opioid and heroin epidemic.

Governor Baker has supported robust business sectors by reforming the Commonwealth's regulatory environment, holding the line on taxes, and advancing efforts to rein in energy costs.

Ensuring Massachusetts continues to be a national leader in education, Governor Baker has invested over $4.6 billion in Chapter 70 education funding -- the highest level of local education aid in state history. 

Confronted with a devastating opioid and heroin epidemic, Governor Baker’s administration has implemented a plan focused on prevention, intervention, treatment and recovery support, including partnering with the legislature on passage of landmark legislation.

Met with a historic snowfall during his first winter in office that halted our beleaguered mass transit system, Governor Baker undertook a major overhaul to fix the MBTA by appointing a Fiscal and Management Control Board to oversee the system's operations and finances, and prioritize investments in the core system that over one million daily riders depend upon.

Prior to his election, Governor Baker was a highly successful leader of complex business and government organizations, serving as a cabinet secretary to both Governor William Weld and Paul Cellucci, and leading Harvard Pilgrim Health Care, as CEO, from the brink of bankruptcy to one of the nation’s highest ranked health care providers.

Raised in Needham, Governor Baker and his wife Lauren reside in Swampscott, and are the proud parents of their three children, Charlie, AJ, and Caroline.

Joining Governor Baker in the program will be Eric Rosengren, president of the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston. Rosengren became the Boston Fed’s  13th president and chief executive officer in July 2007, after holding senior positions in both the Bank’s economic research and bank supervision functions.

Rosengren has written extensively on macroeconomics, international banking, bank supervision, and risk management, including articles in leading economics and finance journals. Much of his research, analysis, and public speaking have focused on how problems in the financial sector impact the real economy.
