PARTY SNAPSHOTS FROM MAYOR SEFATIA’S FABULOUS SCHOONER FESTIVAL WELCOME RECEPTION

The Mayor’s Schooner Festival Welcoming Reception was a fantastic success and wonderful fun. Maritime Gloucester’s dock was overflowing with Schooner Fest friends, well-wishers, and organizers. I think it was the most well attended ever and speaks to the growing success of Gloucester’s Schooner Festival (and to our Mayor’s charisma!).Mayor Sefatia welcomed Governor Baker, Lt. Governor Karen Polito, Schooner Bluenose II Captain Phil Watson and both Representative Ann Margaret Ferrante and State Senator Bruce Tarr were in attendance.

Can you describe for someone that doesn’t know, what are the types of things you do as an agent other than the obvious- negotiating contracts?
I’d say there are like a million kids that go to college and they want to be sports agents.  Glamorous, right?  So there has to be a tremendous amount of competition as an agent getting athletes to sign with you.  How do you reach out and let players know that you are available and convince them they should sign with you?
I can’t imagine the amount of pressure you would feel negotiating a contract for an athlete when you come to a crossroad with a team and try to push the line but not lose the deal.  Your stress level must be completely out of control.

Boston Globe on Beauport, Biotech, Windover

“Fishing is going to be our heritage and first priority,” Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken said. But she added, “We’re moving forward.”

Kathleen Conti describes Gloucester Biotechnology Academy and Beauport Hotel as meaningful catalysts. In addition to the Mayor’s quote, there are comments  and points of view shared by several: Sherri Zizik; Vito Giacalone; Gregory Verdine; Ken Riehl, Cape Ann Chamber of Commerce (nice quote); Lee Dellicker, Winhover Construction (Beauport); George Marsh (architect Gloucester Biotechnology). Oh, and the former Mayor of New Bedford, John Bullard. chimes in.

Other new businesses downtown beyond this article include goodlinens opening July 1, Jane Deering Gallery on Pleasant Street, the new bicycle rental shop, and Tonno restaurant. And there’s a new gallery coming to Rocky Neck. More on that later!

Gloucester House SENA2016 Innovate Gloucester -13 kimsmithdesigns.comMoving Gloucester Forward!

Today before an international delegation from the Seafood Expo North America held at the Gloucester House Restaurant luncheon, Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken announced a brand new partnership between Ninety Nine Restaurant and Pub, Gloucester Seafood Processing, and Fishermen’s Wharf.  Ninety Nine will source local seafood from Gloucester to all of its 105 New England restaurants.

“The City of Gloucester would like to thank the Ninety Nine Restaurant and Pub for this new business opportunity for the Gloucester seafood industry. The relationship between our city and the Ninety Nine Restaurant and Pub would not have happened if it were not for the strength of Gloucester seafood and its world-renowned products, ” said Mayor Theken

“The Ninety Nine Restaurant and Pub is based here in Massachusetts and as part of our culture, we strive to build local partnerships with communities across the region. We see today’s announcement, and our decisions to contract Gloucester Seafood as a smart way to support our efforts to offer healthy, fresh, local options to our guests,” said President Charlie Noyes. “We are proud to support the local economy and offer Gloucester seafood to our guests given its strong reputation in the marketplace.”Gloucester House SENA2016 Innovate Gloucester -9 kimsmithdesigns.com
