Wednesday, July 12, 2017

 

Charlie Baker

Governor Charlie Baker signed an executive order establishing the Latino Advisory Commission and swore in the commission’s members on Monday.

The commission will focus on addressing the concerns of the Massachusetts Latino community and promoting economic prosperity and well-being.

“The members of our Latino Advisory Commission each bring a depth of experience and diversity to the table, and I look forward to their recommendations. Our administration is committed to creating opportunities all our citizens in every corner of the Commonwealth to drive economic growth and success, and I’m confident this commission will add meaningful value to our goal to make Massachusetts the best place to live, work and raise a family,” said Governor Charlie Baker.

The Commission

Members of the Commission include gubernatorial appointees with varying expertise in business, community outreach, media, law, health care, education and represent a group diverse in gender, race, industry, region, age and education.

The Commission will also include the involvement of the secretariats for Education, Health and Human Services, Housing and Economic Development, Public Safety and Security and Labor and Workforce Development.

Appointees will serve for a term of four years. Josie Stamatos Martinez, Senior Partner and General Counsel of Employee Benefit Solutions will serve as Chair and Robert Harnais, owner of Mahoney & Harnais will serve as Vice-Chair.

The Commission will review and assess the priorities of the Latino community on a statewide basis and make recommendations to the Governor and Lt. Governor by identifying up to three priority areas to be addressed by the Commission over the course of the next two years.

The Commission will meet at least quarterly and will submit a formal written report on its work, findings, methodology, and recommendations as well as metrics to measure the effects of implemented recommendations on the lives of members of the Latino community in Massachusetts to the Governor and Lt. Governor every two years.
