And as the 100 Most Influential Bostonians, you’re more focused today on delivering an incredible employee, constituent, citizen, and customer experience.  One that is an equitable and consistent experience whether they’re at home or in the office, on the Cape, Berkshires or in the City Limits of Boston.  This is no easy task, and I congratulate you all for your grace under the pressure of leading our public and private sectors institutions in 2022 and especially over the past 3 years under a global pandemic. We’re honored to sponsor tonight’s event and want to thank Chris Vogel and the Boston Magazine team not only because many of you are our clients, but also because of your leadership in today’s unique environment.
