December 9, 2013 - MAHA members and friends gathered in Dorchester on Monday night to celebrate our annual meeting and numerous accomplishments over the past year. It was a night for transitions as President LaTanya Ramsey passed the gavel after a three-year stint to her successor Esther Maycock-Thorne.
MAHA welcomed a new board member, Bob Sheridan, president emeritus of Savings Bank Life Insurance and longtime MAHA booster. Bob chaired MAHA's capital campaign from 2006-2008 that resulted in our new home on Dorchester Avenue and also chairs MAHA's Kitchen Cabinet. MAHA's officers for 2014 will be Esther Maycock-Thorne as President, Symone Crawford as Vice President, Rick Kronish as Treasurer, and Thadine Brown as Clerk.
In the first open mayoral race in twenty years, Dorchester state representative Marty Walsh edged City Councilor John Connolly in a close contest.
MAHA congratulates Mayor-elect Walsh and looks forward to working with him on implementing the responsible banking ordinance recently passed by the City Council and other issues impacting low and moderate income homebuyers and homeowners.
Michelle Wu, Ayanna Pressley, Michael Flaherty, and Steve Murphy were the winners in the City Council at-large race.
