My Main Street My Boston Coalition to host Mayoral Forum on Small Business Development
Monday, August 19th at Strand Theatre

BOSTON, MA  (August 6, 2013) --The My Main Street, My Boston Coalition, a collection of local Main Street organizations, will host a Mayoral Forum on Monday, August 19th at 6:30pm at the Strand Theatre in Upham’s Corner at 543 Columbia Road in Dorchester.

All 12 mayoral candidates have been invited and will be in attendance. The forum will be free and open to the public, and local residents and businesses are encouraged to attend.

The purpose of this forum is to give the candidates an opportunity to discuss the importance of small businesses in the neighborhoods of Boston. Issues include challenges in opening a small business, job creation, financial assistance and the large impact small businesses have on the economic vitality of the neighborhoods in which they operate.

The moderator, WGBH journalist Callie Crossley, will ask each of the candidates the same opening question which will be developed in advance by small business owners.

The forum will also serve as a kickoff to a larger campaign around the importance of neighborhood small business development.  For more details or questions on the August 19th forum, please call Max Gruner, Executive Director of East Boston Main Streets, at 617-561-1044 or visit .

East Boston Main Streets is a public/private partnership initiative of Boston Main Streets, which was established by Mayor Thomas M. Menino. The program has been operating in East Boston since 1995 to create a vibrant business district by initiating private and public improvements, promoting commerce, and supporting efforts to improve the quality of life for all who live, work and do business in East Boston.
