B ENEFITS OF CHAMBER MEMBERSHIP Chamber membership is more than having a voice for local businesses. The Chamber is a rainmaker for member companies. According to a research study by The Shapiro Group, Inc. and Market Street Services, when consumers know that a small business is a member of their local chamber of commerce, they are 44 percent more likely to think favorably of it and 63 percent more likely to purchase goods or services from the company in the future. That is why the benefits we offer at the Bristol County Chamber of Commerce are specifically tailored to increase a member company’s productivity, efficiency, access to information and influential people, and above all, generate new revenue streams.

MEMBER BUSINESS REFERRALS The Chamber receives requests every day for business referrals and references regarding health insurers, manufacturers, service providers, restaurants, tourist attractions, builders, realtors, attorneys, accountants, plumbers, retailers, etc. The Chamber refers and promotes members in good standing. The Chamber also frequently learns of opportunities that may not be known to the general population. Make sure the Chamber promotes and links your company to referrals and other opportunities by being a Chamber member. MONEY SAVING PROGRAMS

Our outstanding Member-to-Member discount program is the talk of the region. It allows business owners and employees from each Chamber member business the opportunity to receive a discount from participating businesses just by presenting their membership card. The Chamber has also negotiated many affinity partnerships designed to save your company money in advertising, e-commerce, office supplies, legal fees, etc. Massachusetts has the highest cost of energy in the United States. While advocating to reduce the cost of energy the Chamber has also made available several energy cost savings programs for small and large businesses. An example is our cost saving collaborative for large scale energy users made available through the SouthCoast Electric Power Group (SCEPG).

T HE VOICE OF BUSINESS IN ACTION The Bristol County Chamber of Commerce is a group of people who have chosen to serve in an administrative or advisory capacity in order to exercise leadership toward dealing with community challenges and generating economic opportunities for the enhancement of free enterprise. Please know that great progress is made each year through the often invisible work of the Chamber of Commerce and its many members. Some notable examples are listed below.

LEGISLATION •

Working with partners across Massachusetts and Rhode Island, the Chamber is part of a broad coalition of groups addressing the high cost of electricity. In last year’s legislative session, the Chamber testified on numerous energy projects and at government hearings involving energy policy. The Chamber also was actively engaged in behind the scenes advocacy that led to the passage of the House version to the Massachusetts Energy Bill that became law in 2016. Enactment of the energy law has opened the door for an offshore wind energy project to be developed in Southeastern Massachusetts The banning of non-compete agreements, actions to increase the minimum wage, strict scheduling, an employer paid family leave law and a millionaire’s tax that would be a new income tax on businesses are all legislative actions that the Chamber is advocating against right now at hearings and in discussions with legislators. The Chamber is also working on repeals or amendments to numerous taxes and regulations impacting businesses.

As an active participant within the Gateway Cities Legislative Coalition, the Chamber assisted with the drafting and advocacy of Gateway Cities legislation that has been infused within the new Municipal Reform Law.

The Chamber successfully advocated for the establishment of a trust account for tourism funding in Massachusetts. Operating the only tourism and visitor center in Bristol County the Chamber continues to be strong proponent for the funding of tourism promotion in Southeastern Massachusetts.

The Chamber is working with the Retailers Association of Massachusetts to expand the sales tax in MA to include many out of state internet retailers in order to level the playing field for local businesses. The Chamber is also working with RAM to establish a permanent sales tax holiday in August.

At the national level, the Chamber was part of a coalition that secured a temporary waiver for Massachusetts from the onerous conditions within the Affordable Care Act.

In partnership with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the Chamber submitted an amicus www.bristolcountychamber.org

 09


curiae legal brief with the action to enjoin the U.S. Department of Labor from implementing new overtime regulations. That effort ended successfully.

The Chamber was also part of a national coalition of business organizations that advocated for reauthorization of the U.S. Export-Import Bank.

game changer a reality. The Chamber is also working with MassDOT, Mass Coastal Rail and MassDevelopment to increase commercial freight opportunities by expanding rail and water shipping along the Taunton River.

ZONING AND 43D DISTRICT •

Several years ago, the Chamber worked closely with the City of Fall River to draft and implement the Waterfront District, the Medical District and the largest 43D District in Massachusetts. The benefits of these initiatives were recognized as factors that attracted the interest of Amazon, CEA Group and others to locate in Fall River.

Amazon, employing more than 2,000 people in Fall River, has officially opened their new 1.2 million square foot facility. The Fall River distribution center is the largest Amazon shipping facility in the United States.

The Chamber is currently working with the City of Fall River in reviewing and recommending amendments to the Zoning Ordinances of Fall River.

The Chamber is currently working with the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in support of a comprehensive transportation system repair bill and tax reform.

TRANSPORTATION •

  10

For the past decade the Chamber has been directly involved with the planning and redesign of an improved Interstate 195/Route 79 interchange system along the Fall River waterfront. Now completed, the spaghetti ramp system that once separated the business districts of Fall River from the waterfront has been replaced with a $229 million thoroughfare that invites commuters into the region rather than driving over it. The Chamber has also been a strong advocate in the securing of funding within MassDOT’s Capital Investment Plan for the $80 million Route 79N interchange project. Efforts are currently underway with the planning and redesign of the north section to the Route 79 interchange system and development of the Fall River pier location, which also recently was funded. Working with the Southeastern Regional Transit Authority (SRTA), the Chamber has been instrumental in expanding public transportation within Bristol County, which now includes night and industrial park services. The Chamber is currently working with SRTA, RIPTA and GATRA to address interstate public transportation between Massachusetts and Rhode Island. Great progress has been made on the issue of Commuter Rail. The Chamber has been hard at work with the Governor’s office and MassDOT in making this vital economic www.bristolcountychamber.org

INFRASTRUCTURE •

In partnership with the Fall River Industrial Park Association the Chamber effectively advocated for a $1 million bond to repair and maintain roads and water drainage within the Fall River Industrial Park.

The Chamber successfully advocated for replacing the water tower in the Industrial Park that services over seventy businesses, the north end of Fall River and the new Life Sciences and Technology Park in Fall River. The Industrial Park water tower went on line in 2016.

The Chamber worked with the Block Island Ferry and the Stateline Pier to continue high speed ferry services from Fall River to Block Island and Newport.

The Chamber worked with its partners to find a solution that reopened the Fall River


Carousel, which is now operated by Battleship Cove. Battleship Cove is home to the largest collection of retired Naval war vessels. •

The Chamber is currently reviewing the costs and benefits of building a new high school in Fall River. The Chamber’s Foundation is the funding mechanism for the Durfee Rising Campaign.

COMPETITIVE TAX SHIFT RATE FOR LOCAL BUSINESSES •

During the past 7 years, the Chamber has made its case to reduce the commercial tax shift rate in the City of Fall River. For 3 years in a row, the commercial tax shift rate has been reduced from the maximum 1.75 rate to 1.69%.

The Chamber continues to stand up for increased funding to area schools and has worked to expand the role of Teach For America in the Fall River schools, while also assisting in the expansion of the UAspire financial counseling program that helps students plan for funding a college education.

The EdUp website is funded by the Chamber’s Foundation. Visit www.edupaspire.org.

EdUp book markers and wrist bands are being distributed to students through the area schools via the new EdUp bus sponsored and created by BayCoast Bank.

Four years ago the Chamber and Bristol Community College designated November as Bristol County Workforce Month. The Chamber’s newspaper, radio show and TV show are all leveraged to highlight and educate area residents about transitions within the workforce.

In 2017, the City Council wanted to reinstate the 1.75% rate, but due to Chamber advocacy, established that the tax shift rate will be 1.72%. The consistent reduction in the commercial property tax shift is meaningful relief to businesses that have been produced through the advocacy efforts of the Chamber. Working to improve the regional business climate, Somerset, Swansea and Seekonk have lowered their tax shifts on commercial properties. In 2013, the Chamber worked with the City Council to establish a $10,000 commercial personal property tax exemption to assist businesses. The personal property tax exemption has been continued through 2017.

EDUCATION AND WORKFORCE DEVELOPMENT •

Committee produced the fourth all area College Day throughout Bristol County.

Funded by the Chamber’s 501c(3) Foundation, the Education Committee is implementing a sustained multi-media marketing campaign aimed at raising educational aspiration levels in the region. The EdUp Campaign is one of the most important Chamber initiatives. As part of the EdUp effort, the Education

BRANDING •

A great effort has been placed on the marketing of our region’s assets in order to attract and retain businesses.

The Chamber advocated for funding of a branding campaign that was launched by the City of Fall River in 2017. Efforts are now underway in producing the “Make it Here” in Fall River campaign.

The Chamber has also worked to incorporate area assets into the Massachusetts Marketing Partnership’s promotion efforts through the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism (MOTT) that are aimed at marketing the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.

The Bristol County tourism and visitor’s information area is located in the lobby of the Chamber of Commerce. The Information Center is sponsored by BankFive.

E CONOMIC DEVELOPMENT Quequechan was the ancestral home of the Wampanoag Indians until King Phillip’s War in 1675. An abundant water supply along with access to the Taunton River made “falling river” a great place to settle during the colonial period prior and through the Revolutionary War. Ultimately the Quequechan River attracted thousands of people from all over the world. These immigrants provided Fall River with a diversity of Chamber President & CEO Rob Mellion meets with SouthCoast Marketplace devlopers The CEA Group character held together by a local pride that FALL RIVER IS THE characterizes the spirit behind SPINDLE CITY Fall River’s “We’ll Try” motto. The corporate headquarters of the Bristol County Chamber of Commerce are located within Fall River, Massachusetts. Fall River is frequently referred to as the “Spindle City.” This is because Fall River has long been an economic catalyst within Bristol County. The American Industrial Revolution took root in Fall River. Fall River was originally called “Quequechan,” which meant “falling water” to the Wampanoag Indians. The Wampanoag’s, who have resided within Bristol County for thousands of years, named the area for the small river that turned into steep falls before flowing into the Taunton River.   16

By 1850, the railroad connected Fall River to Boston and New York. The result was an influx of people seeking opportunity. Driving Fall River’s early growth was a booming textile manufacturing industry founded on print cloth production. Construction of the Durfee Mill in 1866 heralded the beginning of tremendous growth and prosperity. Fall River’s population would soon swell to over 120,000 by the end of the nineteenth century. The manufacturing of cotton into print cloth was the first major industry in Fall River. By 1880, Fall River was the leading textile city in the United States.

Over 500,000 spindles produced 1/6 of all cotton capacity in New England. Fall River also produced one half of all print cloth production in the world. This is why Fall River became known as the “Spindle City.” In 1911, Fall River hosted the “Cotton Centennial.” This was a large scale week long celebration of the city’s achievements in becoming the world headquarters for the textile industry. A highlight of the Cotton Centennial was the attendance of President William Howard Taft. 1911 was also the organizational year of the Fall River Merchant’s Association. The Fall River Merchant’s Association was the first of five corporate names adopted by what is now the Bristol County Chamber of Commerce. A past weakness within Fall River’s economy was that it had been built largely around print cloth production. World War I sustained the print cloth industry, but the postwar economy quickly slowed. Also hurting textiles was that production had finally outpaced world demand. During the interwar period of the 1920’s, Fall River’s mills faced serious competition from their southern counterparts as labor was cheaper in the South. The South also had the benefit of transportation and machinery investments from the North due to national policy during the Reconstruction Period. As production moved to Tennessee and other southern states, the mills in Fall River began to close or consolidate. Many


low skill jobs were lost in the process. The “Great Fire” of 1928 was an additional factor in the decline of Fall River’s textile industry. Whole sections of the once vibrant downtown area were wiped. Not giving up on their city, the business community under the direction of the Fall River Chamber of Commerce (the Chamber’s second adopted name) pooled together their resources in an effort to rebuild. “We’ll try” to rebuild Fall River became the official city motto. Many of the structures near the corner of North Main and Bedford Street date from the early 1930s. Much of the area was rebuilt after the Great Fire. The rebuilding of Fall River for a second time is a true testament to the “We’ll Try” spirit of the area’s residents and business people. Another historical event impacting Fall River’s economic evolution was the Great Depression. By 1940, there were just 17 mill companies in operation, as compared to 49 in 1917. With the demise of the textile industry, many of the city’s mills would become occupied by smaller companies. This is where the business community stepped in with a solution.

At the invitation of a delegation from the Fall River Chamber of Commerce, the New York garment industry was solicited to establish itself in Fall River during the period immediately after World War II. The attraction was a ready workforce and abundant mill space. An economic resurgence followed. By the mid 1940’s, nearly onefifth of the city’s workforce was employed within the garment industry.

unceremoniously discharged into the Taunton River. A series of elevated steel viaducts, which became known as the “Spaghetti Ramps,” were then constructed to access the new Braga Bridge. The unintended consequence was that Fall River became a place for commuters to drive over and pass without stopping. The viaducts also hindered local commerce by literally cutting off the Fall River business districts from the waterfront.

Modern Fall River took shape in the period following WWII. The postwar “Automobile Revolution” during the 1950’s and 1960s transformed the city’s landscape after World War II, as the federal government and Massachusetts began planning and constructing new highway networks that linked major cities, while also easing urban congestion. Several local highway infrastructure projects were erected. Most notably were the Braga Bridge, the Route 79 Interchange System (originally referred to as the Fall River Expressway) and Interstate 195.

Then the garment industry bottomed out during the 1980’s and manufacturing fell victim to the economics of NAFTA and globalism during the 1990’s. Adding to local economic challenges were several devastating mill fires. Ironically, it was from the ashes of the devastating fire at the former Kerr Mill Complex that Fall River’s economic resurgence had its genesis.

A casualty to progress was the Quequechan River and its waterfalls. The historic Quequechan waterfalls, which had given Fall River its name, was filled in and diverted into underground culverts that

The former Kerr Mill site was redeveloped into the Advanced Technology & Manufacturing Center (ATMC) of UMassDartmouth. This $14 million business incubator project, financed by the Massachusetts Development Agency, marked the region’s transition to 21st century economic opportunities. In 2015, the ATMC was repackaged to become the www.bristolcountychamber.org

Center for Innovation and Entrepreneurship (CIE). The CIE has graduated several dozen start-ups in the fields of marine technology, clean technology and biomedical engineering. Many of these successful new businesses have located and set up operations within Bristol County. The 1990’s was also marked by a shift aimed at reshaping the economy of Fall River and the surrounding towns. The goal has been to repair and improve infrastructure and area assets in a manner that cultivates existing and emerging industries, in order to advance a mixed and sustainable economy. Diversification of the local economy built on niche manufacturing, green technology, life sciences, transportation, distribution, professional services and a creative economy has been the key to recent accomplishments. After years of planning and advocacy, major transportation

projects are now completed, while others are underway. An example is the new Veterans Memorial Bridge, which replaced the Brightman Street Bridge. The Veterans Memorial Bridge now serves as the primary connection point for both Fall River and Somerset. It also directs commuter traffic northward to Boston by interconnecting Tiverton, R.I., Fall River, Swansea and Somerset with the northern section of Route 79. The Veterans Memorial Bridge, which parallels the repainted and structurally improved “industrial blue” Braga Bridge, compliments the now completed Route 24 exit 8B project. That $60 million infrastructure investment, which was dedicated to honor former State Senator Joan Menard, generates direct highway access to the newly established Life Sciences and Technology Park in Fall River. The Life Sciences and Technology Park is now home to Mass Biologics and the

new 1.2 million square foot Amazon distribution center. The Amazon distribution center in Fall River is the largest Amazon facility in the United States. A complimentary FedEx distribution center will be operational in neighboring Seekonk in 2018. Another critical factor to Fall River’s recent success has been the removal and replacement of the 1960’s spaghetti ramps system that divided the business district of Fall River from its waterfront. This $229 million revitalization project was long sought after by the Chamber and local businesses. Here is where the Chamber, the Fall River Office of Economic Development (FROED), elected officials and many community partners transcended local politics by providing vision and advocacy that ultimately secured the removal of the spaghetti ramps and their replacement with a waterfront avenue that connects Route 79 to Route 24. This symbolic reshaping of the


waterfront has been a catalyst for resurgence. The final phase of the waterfront reconfiguration is underway now as the focus has shifted to the construction of the $80 million Route 79 North Boulevard. Route 79N is being restructured into a waterfront boulevard that will create access to approximately eleven acres of developable commercial property along the scenic Taunton River. The new scenic boulevard will also add to the quality of life for area residents by providing an enhanced multipurpose walking and biking pathway adjacent to Commonwealth Landing, Battleship Cove, the Iwo Jima (replica) Memorial and several marinas. Another important development has been the restoration of the railway lines running along the waterfront. The once dormant rail lines have been repaired and enhanced for higher speed freight transportation. They are now used to transport commercial freight on a daily basis. This $33 million rail and bridge investment (made with both private and public funds) has laid the foundation for future tourism and commuter rail services from Boston to Fall River. The next step will be the phased in addition of commuter rail services from Boston to Fall River and New Bedford. Upon completion this project will transform the southeastern region of Massachusetts. A commuter rail platform is planned for the

area across from Battleship Cove. Another enhancement has been the introduction of high speed ferry services from Fall River to Newport and Block Island. This service is available through the Block Island Ferry and is available at the Stateline Pier facility in Fall River. Also noteworthy is that significant upgrades are underway at the Stateline Pier. The result is that industry is leveraging the deep water Taunton River facilities for niche short sea shipping operations. An additional opportunity has been visitations by passenger cruise vessels serviced by American Cruise Lines as part of a scenic New England cities coastline tour. MADE IN FALL RIVER

As infrastructure investments continue, new jobs are being created by private industry. This is particularly evident with the reappearance of manufacturing through niche high end products that cannot be replicated by cheap and unskilled labor from abroad. Many older manufacturers are also adapting and finding inventive ways to compete and grow through the infusion of technology. Evidence of job creation and industry expansion is significant. In both the 500 acre Fall River Industrial Park and the 160 acre Commerce Park, over 70 businesses employ more than 6000 men and women. Products ranging from

medical sutures to solid state lighting fixtures are designed, manufactured and distributed by prominent international and domestic firms such as Phillips, Whirlpool, Blount Fine Foods, Millstone Medical, Bristol Marine, Fall River Manufacturing, H&S Tool and Engineering, Rex-Cut Products, Inc., John Matouk and Company and R.I. Novelty. Adjacent to the Fall River Industrial Park is the 300 acre Life Sciences and Technology Park. Known as the “Biopark,” it has express zoning that accommodates biotech manufacturing, medical device manufacturing, life science, IT and other industries. Abutting Route 24, the building sites include all utilities and can accommodate water usage of 1.5 to 2.0 million gallons per day. MassBiologics was the first tenant. Amazon recently opened a 1.2 million-squarefoot, large-item fulfillment center on a 90-acre site. The Amazon Fulfilment Center, the largest in the United States, has already created over 2000 area jobs. Many other commercial enterprises including boat manufacturing and repair services exist along both sides of the Taunton River. Noteworthy examples include TPI Composites, Gladding-Hearn Shipbuilding and Bristol Marine. SUPPORTIVE BUSINESS CLIMATE AND WORKFORCE

in Fall River’s business development efforts has been Jobs for Fall River, Inc. Jobs for Fall River was established in 1978 as a one-stop shop for economic development with the very clear objectives of creating new jobs, retain existing jobs, and assist local businesses in their efforts to grow. Jobs for Fall River eventually evolved into the Fall River Office of Economic Development (FROED). FROED offers an array of incentives to startup, expanding and relocating businesses, including low-interest financing, tax increment financing (TIF) approval and connections with employee recruitment and training services as well as site selection assistance. FROED has also provided technical support for permitting, infrastructure, licensing and various other business needs. These programs can be packaged with other private and public sector incentives. All FROED services are offered free of charge. Frequently, the Chamber and FROED work side by side. FROED and other local government incentives serve as a complement to the region’s favorable business climate.

The combination of streamline permitting, preferential business districts, tax increment financing, lower business costs and a unique collection of business advantages along with natural resources such as an abundant water supply make Fall River and its many surrounding towns an ideal region for businesses to expand or locate. Real estate, including raw land and existing space, is very affordable when compared with other metropolitan locations such as Providence and Boston. Commercial tax, water and sewer rates are also among the lowest in Southern New England. In addition, electric and other utility costs are competitively priced with neighboring Rhode Island and Connecticut. The common thread to the entire region is the amazing people who live here. The majority of residents are between the ages of 25 and 44. Business training and educational programs are readily available through a superb higher educational network that includes Bristol Community College and UMass – Dartmouth, along with Brown University, Providence College, Bridgewater

G O V E R N M E N T A F FA I R S Bristol County is the Bristol County Chamber of Commerce. The Bristol County Chamber of Commerce was created over 100 years ago to represent and advocate on behalf of area businesses. Chamber members develop the organization’s positions on issues by working through the Government Affairs Committee, the Executive Committee and the Board of Directors. Leaders in business that are involved on these committees are charged with reviewing and monitoring legislation and regulations that Chamber President & CEO Rob Mellion discusses waterfront impact industry development with Massachusetts Lieutenant Governor Karyn and commerce.

Therefore, it should be no surprise that the medium often leveraged to Above all the Chamber is express the collective views an independent voice for of businesses throughout

businesses. Working in collaboration with government leaders is very important, but it is essential to distinguish that the Chamber is not a department within any municipal entity, or part of any state, or federal agency. Furthermore, the Chamber organization only operates on private financial support. The Chamber does not receive operational funding from any city, town or state entity. The Chamber also does not maintain a Political Action Committee (PAC) and does not offer endorsements of elected officials prior to elections. These long standing ethical practices allow the Chamber to objectively represent business interests without conflicts of interest or political pressure. The Bristol County Chamber of Commerce is proud to serve as the region’s most ardent supporter for businesses. We are absolutely unapologetic in our support of enterprise and commerce. These are the employers who are making investments, taking on risks, creating jobs and supporting infrastructure and government services through their taxes and payrolls. Member companies also provide the means for the community to afford the public amenities and quality of life investments that are enjoyed by area residents. The Chamber also works tirelessly to ensure the success of area businesses. By advocating for the best interests of businesses and our community the Chamber fulfills its mission and purpose.

L E G I S L AT I V E I S S U E S P L AT F O R M 2017 2018 The Legislative Issues Platform of the Bristol County Chamber of Commerce for the 2017 - 2018 legislative session was adopted by the Board of Directors on March 29, 2017.

EMPLOYER HEALTH CARE TAX The “Employer Contribution to Health Care” provision within the FY 2018 Budget is an employer tax hidden by “assessment language” that will likely hit most businesses with 11, or more, full-time equivalent employees. The FY2018 budget has been passed by both the House and the Senate. The Governor amended the budget to not include the assessment unless reforms were made to MassHealth. In July 2017, the House and Senate both voted to override the Governor’s amendment without reforming MassHealth. •

  24

The Bristol County Chamber of Commerce opposes the employer assessment for several reasons. While employers that do not offer health insurance will pay the penalty per employee, so will employers that may offer excellent health insurance to all of their employees. Many employers offering insurance will likely pay the tax because they fail to reach the employee takeup rate of 80% through no fault of their own. The Chamber also opposes the assessment because the growing shortfall at MassHealth, which provides health insurance

www.bristolcountychamber.org

to 1.9 million low-income Massachusetts residents, is attributable largely to problems arising from the ACA, and not from Bristol County employers. •

The Chamber strongly believes that an assessment without cost reducing reforms to MassHealth is a tax on businesses.

EMPLOYER PAID FAMILY LEAVE A proposal working its way through the state legislature that could raise the cost of doing business is a bill requiring employers to provide employees

with 26 weeks of paid family leave time. If passed, in addition to extended leave time for employee illnesses, this bill would mandate that virtually all MA employers provide family leave for up to 16 weeks for the birth/adoption of a child or to care for a relative, including spouse, parent, grandparent, in-law, child, or grandchild. Specifically, employers would be forced to pay workers a percentage of their salary during this leave, which could be up to $1,000 per week. Massachusetts would be the only state in the United States requiring employers to take on this burden. •

Recognizing that alternatives should be


investigated in order to assist employees in addressing their health care needs, the Bristol County Chamber of Commerce is in opposition to Employer Paid Family Leave as it is currently presented. MILLIONAIRE’S TAX Under the current referendum proposal, “ANY INCOME” over $1 million would be taxed at both the current flat rate and an additional 4 percent surtax, so that the new tax rate would be 9 percent, or more. The “any income” language means that this proposed amendment is especially concerning for small business owners who pay taxes as passthrough entities such as sole proprietorships, partnerships, limited liability companies, and “S” Corporations. As passthrough businesses, a company’s business income rather than the owner’s salary is taxed at the individual rate when the owner files their tax return. The real hit could occur when a business, or equipment is sold, or when an estate issue arises due to the death of an owner. If the constitutional amendment gets enough votes at the next Massachusetts constitutional convention, voters will weigh in on the measure in 2018. Ultimately, the measure amounts to a nearly $2 billion tax hike that mainly impacts small businesses in Massachusetts. •

The Bristol County Chamber is in opposition to the “Millionaire’s Tax,” because it is a direct tax on businesses.

Too often the stated beneficiary for new revenues is never the recipient of such funds. There are also no constitutional controls written within the referendum that ensure the captured revenues will get allocated toward their stated purpose of supporting new infrastructure and education. The consequence is that the new revenues will likely get dispersed through the general account for any purpose seen fit by the Legislature.

$15 MINIMUM WAGE Three-quarters of Massachusetts employers would face additional increases in their compensation costs if state lawmakers pass the $15 per hour minimum wage. Last year, the Massachusetts minimum wage rose to $11 per hour. That was a 9% increase. Massachusetts is now tied for first place with the highest minimum wage in the United States. For many Chamber member employers a $15 minimum wage is more like $20 when their withholdings contributions are added. Time and a half on Sundays, which is required by law in Massachusetts, becomes an outrageous $22.50 per hour at a $15 minimum wage base rate. Such compensation increases would be enough to force many small companies to postpone hiring, consider closing, or leave MA altogether. Another factor for consideration is that Rhode Island and New Hampshire allow their employers to pay a substantially lower “Teen Wage.” Massachusetts is one of the very

few states without a teen wage. •

The Bristol County Chamber of Commerce recommends that other alternatives such as a competitive teen wage be investigated and established by the Legislature before attempting to pass a $15 minimum wage in Massachusetts.

STRICT SCHEDULING If passed, a Strict Scheduling Law would limit changes in work schedules and any changes would result in penalties to employers. For instance, the legislation would require 21day advance written notice of an employee’s work schedule. For any changes made to the schedule within 21 days, workers would be entitled to one hour of additional “predictability pay.” No exemptions for small businesses or non-profits are written into the current bill. •

While recognizing that some employers in Massachusetts can abuse employees the Bristol County Chamber of Commerce opposes the Strict Scheduling Bill, as it is currently proposed. This legislation is extremely burdensome to member businesses, but it is acknowledged that some protections should be investigated and enacted.

ENERGY COSTS The Commonwealth of Massachusetts continues to have www.bristolcountychamber.org

 25


the highest energy costs in the continental United States. •

Recognizing that the high cost of energy is a significant factor impacting the budgets of member businesses the Bristol County Chamber of Commerce has been very vocal about the need for affordable electricity. Costs will only continue to rise for Massachusetts businesses without increased access to affordable energy sources.

PHASED PLAN TO INTRODUCE COMMUTER RAIL Frustration regarding commuter transportation from Fall River and New Bedford to Boston is

  26

www.bristolcountychamber.org

both warranted and tangible. After decades of going nowhere with the Stoughton Route, the Baker – Polito Administration has announced a Notice of Project Change (NPC) for SouthCoast Rail (SCR). The NPC advances SCR as a phased project rather than pursuing the formerly preferred all at once Stoughton Route. The phased plan would instead use the existing Middleborough/ Lakeville Commuter Rail Line to provide early action service (Phase 1) sooner than if the project was constructed all at once while continuing preliminary engineering design and permitting on the Stoughton Electric route (Phase 2). In this way, Phase 1 could be built immediately. MassDOT would employ funding that is currently earmarked for SCR and available within the Capital Investment Plan that was recently approved.

If the goal at MEPA, MassDOT and the MBTA is to address standstill traffic, while also lowering greenhouse emissions, then the Bristol County Chamber of Commerce strongly urges that MEPA approves the MassDOT NPC request.

It is further asked by the Chamber that MEPA expedite any actions that allow “Phase One” of the SouthCoast Rail project to be constructed As the Southern Triangle of Phase One is essential under either the Stoughton Route or the Middleborough Alternative, it is a common-sense action.

Rehoboth

Nancy A Marshall Photography

The Town of Rehoboth is an historic pastoral community in Bristol County incorporated in 1745. First settlement of the town was about 1652 on the southern portion of the Palmer River. The colony suffered a good deal of damage in the King Philip war but the earliest house in town, Kingsley House, built 1680, still remains a part of the town. By 1704 there was an iron forge in town and by 1714 the Goff Inn was handling travelers coming through on the stage to Taunton, Providence or Newport, Rhode Island. Sawmills were established in 1747 and the primarily agricultural economy was supplemented in 1809 by the opening of two cotton yarn mills at Rehoboth Center. One of these is thought to be the first to spin very fine cotton yarn. In the Perryville section of town, historians conjecture that Era Perry was the first in the country to manufacture bobbins for the area’s cotton factories about 1850. The 325 farms of the town grew Indian corn and potatoes and fattened beef cattle. Rehoboth retains dozens of Colonial and Federal houses and cottages and there is a remarkably wide spread of historic houses and buildings preserved throughout the community. TOWN OF REHOBOTH

Somerset

Pictured: Somerset Berkley Regional High School

Somerset was first settled in 1677 on the Shawomet lands, and was officially incorporated in 1790. It was named for Somerset Square in Boston, which was, in turn, named for the county of Somerset in England. It was once a vital shipping point, and after the War of 1812 it was one of America’s chief distribution points. In 1872, it became the site of a major coal port, and in the early 20th century a large cannery existed in the town. However, as neighboring Fall River’s industry grew, it absorbed much of Somerset’s, and the town took on more of a suburban character. TOWN OF SOMERSET

Swansea Swansea was named for the Welsh city of Swansea, which had been the hometown of some original settlers. John Miles, the founder of the first Baptist Church in Wales, moved to Swansea in 1662/3. William Brenton had purchased the land from Native Americans. Parts of its territory were originally part of Rehoboth, Massachusetts. In 1667 the first Baptist church in Massachusetts relocated to Swansea from Rehoboth after experiencing religious intolerance there, and Swansea was incorporated as an independent town. On June 20, 1675, the first Indian attack of King Philip’s War had all 70 settlers confined to their stockade. By June 25 the entire town had been burned, although a handful of the colonists escaped to Taunton, Massachusetts. When the active war ended in 1676, the town was soon rebuilt. After the King Philip’s War, many small industries, such as forges, ironworks and fisheries, opened up in the town. Many would later leave, and there remains a large agricultural sector. In the late 1890s, trolleys connected the town to Providence, Fall River and Taunton, and the town has retained a suburban residential feel. Today Swansea is well known for its retail areas.

Tiverton, RI

Tiverton is located on the eastern shore of Narragansett Bay, across the Sakonnet River from Aquidneck Island (also known as the Island of Rhode Island). Together with the adjacent town of Little Compton, the area is disconnected from the rest of the state of Rhode Island. The northern portion of the town is located on Mount Hope Bay. Tiverton has a rich colonial history as it was incorporated by English colonists in 1694 as part of the Province of Massachusetts Bay. In 1746, in the final settlement of a long colonial boundary dispute between Rhode Island and Massachusetts, Tiverton was annexed to Rhode Island by Royal Decree. Tiverton was incorporated as a town of Rhode Island in 1747. Until that year, Tiverton also controlled the area of East Freetown, Massachusetts, as an outpost. The boundary settlement of 1746 had put East Freetown in Massachusetts, and in 1747 it was purchased by Freetown. Men from the Tiverton outpost took part in the Battle of Freetown, on May 25, 1778, during the Revolutionary War. For about three years of that war, December 1776 – October 1779, Rhode Island proper (now known as Aquidneck Island) was occupied by the British. During this time, Tiverton was a refuge for Americans fleeing the British occupation. Tiverton became a mustering place for colonial forces, gathering to drive away the British. In its early days, Tiverton was chiefly a farming community with some fishing and boat construction. Until 1900 the manufacture of menhaden oil, a fish derivative, was one of the primary industrial pursuits. Cotton and woolen mills were established as early as 1811, when Colonel Joseph Durfee established a spinning mill at Cook Pond, in what is now the city of Fall River, Massachusetts. In 1856, the northern part of the town was set apart from Tiverton, and renamed Fall River, Rhode Island, by the Rhode Island General Assembly. On March 1, 1862, in a case between the states of Rhode Island and Massachusetts that reached the United States Supreme Court, both Fall Rivers were made part of Massachusetts

Westport, so named because it was the westernmost port in the Massachusetts Bay Colony, was first settled in 1670 as a part of the town of Dartmouth by members of the Sisson family. The river, and the land around it, was called “Coaksett” in the original deed; the name, now spelled “Acoaxet,” lives on in the southwestern community along the western branch of the Westport River. Like many areas in the region, Westport was affected by invading Wampanoag Indians during King Philip’s War in 1675. Several small mills were built along the Westport River, and in 1787, the town, along with the town of New Bedford, seceded from Dartmouth.

Westport

There were several cotton mills along the river, the largest of which was at the junction of the river with Lake Noquochoke on the Dartmouth town line. The Macomber turnip traces its ancestry to turnips sowed in Westport shortly after 1876. During the Second World War, a coastal defense installation was raised on Gooseberry Island. The town is now mostly residential, with a large farming community. Horseneck Beach State Reservation, located to the north and west of Gooseberry Island, is a popular summer destination for many in the area. TOWN OF WESTPORT

The Education Committee of the Bristol County Chamber of Commerce has been leading a multi stakeholder campaign since 2011 that is aimed at raising awareness and aspirations about educational attainment throughout the service area of the Chamber. Earning a post-secondary degree is no longer just a pathway to opportunity for a privileged few. To the contrary, it has become a prerequisite for the retaining and growing of jobs in this region’s transitioning economy. Improving educational attainment levels throughout Southeastern Massachusetts is also critical to the attraction and retention of businesses.

  44

www.bristolcountychamber.org

The EdUp Campaign was established in three stages. Phase one began with the reinstatement of the Chamber’s Education Committee. Since 2011, the Education Committee has been the resounding voice on core educational issues such as support for level funding of services at area public schools. There has also been the introduction and funding by the local business community of Teach for America teachers into several area school systems. Another initiative of the Education Committee has been the multi-year sustained publication of monthly editorials that are published in The Herald News and the Bristol


County Business News monthly newspaper. Educational focused opinion editorials put forward by the Education Committee are also frequently heard on WSAR1480AM. Copies of the editorials are chronicled on www.edupaspire.org. Phase two of the EdUp Campaign was the creation of a multi-stakeholder marketing campaign that is aimed at raising awareness about the value of educational attainment. The campaign was fashioned from data gathered by three marketing research survey projects. A marketing team was then comprised of UMass and BCC administrators, faculty, students and businesses leaders. The team produced the “EdUp - Aspire” brand. The EdUp community partnership then shifted into the implementation stage on Wednesday, September 18, 2013. On that day the Education Committee unveiled the EdUp campaign during a special edition of the Chamber’s “Voice of Business” radio program on WSAR1480AM. The “EdUp” brand has since been expanded to include the development of a community stakeholder group of parents that meets regularly. It was through the work of the stakeholder and parent group that the EdUp Campaign’s first large scale public activity called, “College Day,” was inspired. The first area College Day was held on June 5, 2014. College Day focuses the attention of children and their parents on making it an achievable goal to attend college from a very young age. Research demonstrates that getting children to aspire to attend college is an important tool for schools in meeting school attendance expectations. On College Day school children throughout the region spend the day immersed in activities designed to bring dreaming and achieving to attend college into their sphere. Other steps have included higher visibility through bill board advertising on Interstate 195, the production of EdUp shirts and wrist bands for students and EdUp banners that are on display at area schools. There has also been the creation and distribution of EdUp book makers. Another

significant undertaking has been the development of an information rich website. Visit www. EdUpAspire.org for more information. People engaged in business recognize and value education. That is why the latest effort spearheaded by the Chamber’s Education Committee is the Durfee Rising Campaign. Durfee Rising is a community-based effort to promote the building of a new Durfee High School in Fall River. After years of re-engineering, repairing, reworking, and resolving issues, the city of Fall River has received approval for a significant match grant from the Massachusetts School Building Authority to build a new school worthy of its students. Durfee Rising and all the other EdUp initiatives are part of a privately supported community engagement effort that is made possible through funding by the Bristol County Chamber Foundation, which is a 501(C)3 charitable nonprofit organization and the Education Committee of the Bristol County Chamber of Commerce. One hundred percent of the funds raised through the Bristol County Chamber Foundation are used to support and maintain the EdUp website, education advocacy and the EdUp marketing campaign. Tax deductible charitable contributions to the Bristol County Chamber Foundation can be made to:

Bristol County Chamber Foundation, Inc. 200 Pocasset Street Fall River, MA 02721 (508) 676.8226

The EdUp campaign has been one of the most important initiatives undertaken by the Bristol County Chamber of Commerce. Your support and partnership is needed to ensure that area citizens embrace educational attainment. Please contact the Chamber on how you can help support the mission of the EdUp Campaign.

Worship While the urban landscape of Fall River has many notable features, one cannot help but be impressed by the dozens of steeples and cathedral spires that grace the city skyline from almost any point of entry into the city. Consistent with the diverse cultural backgrounds of the workers, merchants and mill owners who settled throughout Bristol County during the nineteenth century, the region has always been a welcoming home to people of various faiths. Acceptance and respect for diversity of faith is an area strength, which continues to this day. The early population throughout Bristol County was either Congregational, Baptist or Quaker in faith. The First Baptist Church, established in 1781 at the Narrows, moved to its present location on North Main Street, Fall River in 1825. The First Congregational Church was organized in 1816 and the Society of Friends was organized in 1819. New congregations formed and church buildings went up steadily including the First Methodist in 1826, the First Christian in 1829, the Unitarian in 1832, the Episcopal Church of the Ascension in 1836, Central Congregational in 1842, the Second Baptist and United Presbyterian in 1846, St. Paul’s M.E. in 1851 and the Church of the New Jerusalem in 1854. The first Catholic Church, St. Mary’s, was organized in 1836 followed by the Sacred Heart in 1873. The first Jewish synagogue within the region was also established shortly thereafter. Bristol County is also home to the Diocese of Fall River, which was established as a division of the Diocese of Providence in March 1904. The Diocese covers an expansive 1194 square miles from Attleboro east to Cape Cod and the Islands. Around 1900, the essayist Lyman noted, “At the present time there are about forty Protestant churches, besides several missions, fifteen Catholic churches and three Jewish congregations. The constituency of the Catholics far outnumbers that of the Protestants; and their church building are both more spacious and of a more solid character.” Near many of these edifices are church schools, where some thousands of children receive elementary instruction. Some of the parish schools carry the instruction up to the high school grade. The history and contributions of area religious leaders during the 19th and 20th centuries in many ways rivals that of the workers and owners of the cotton mills and   46

textile industries. Strong parish organizations, many of which included large schools run by an amazingly diverse group of Catholic Sisters and Brothers, have provided high quality education to thousands of young people, often in bilingual settings. These include educational opportunities include both day schools and boarding schools. They also include schools with specialized curriculums in classical, commercial and nursing courses. Over the years the Catholic Church has also managed orphanages and established asylums, nursing homes, hospitals and later, dozens of credit unions, each attached to its own church parish. Today, new congregations and religious groups are mixed with the old respectively. The religious diversity within the various cities and towns symbolizes that Bristol County is intensely and openly religious as a community, but equally tolerant and receptive to all.

T OURISM AND A TTRACTION GUIDE

EXPLORE AND BE INSPIRED The secret is out. The service area of the Bristol County Chamber of Commerce offers a wide selection of attractions, beaches, vineyards, wholesale and artisan outlets and sporting venues. The best part is that they are all easily accessible. Whether it is a day trip on the USS Massachusetts or a night in the Lizzie Borden Bed and Breakfast, there is a sure bet within your reach if you are seeking great cuisine, history, nature or cultural activities. A must see is the World famous Battleship Cove. Battleship Cove is home to the USS Battleship Massachusetts (BB-59). Each year hundreds of thousands of visitors are drawn to the largest collection of retired naval warfare vessels. This truly unique floating museum provides visitors with amazing hands on access to the USS Battleship Massachusetts, the attack submarine USS Lionfish, the destroyer, USS Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr., two P.T. boats and a Soviet era Russian missile boat. Only a short walk from Battleship Cove is the Maritime Museum. Housed in the museum is an extensive collection of model ships and memorabilia from the golden era of the great ships and luxury steam liners that frequented Fall River during the height of the American textile industry. There is even a one ton model of the Titanic on display. Also located at the door front of Battleship Cove is the Fall River

Carousel. Incredibly restored to the splendor of its first days of use at the historic Lincoln Park, this century old Philadelphia Toboggan Company Carousel #54 is fully operational. A little known fact is that the Fall River Carousel is the oldest functioning carousel of its kind in the United States. Another nearby attraction is the replica Iwo Jima monument that rests in the veterans Bicentennial Park on the waterfront of Fall River. The names of hundreds of veterans have been imprinted on bricks and benches surrounding the memorial. Looking for a genuine haunted experience? The Lizzie Borden B&B/Museum has been cited by CNN Travel, Huffington Post and MSNBC as the place to go! You know the story. On August 4, 1892 a wealthy businessman and his wife were found brutally murdered in their Victorian home in Fall River, Massachusetts. The accused murderer was their youngest daughter, Lizzie, who was found not guilty. Stay at the beautifully restored Greek-revival home of the Borden family. It is now a first-class bed & breakfast with a catch. People swear that the home is haunted. If sleeping in a haunted house is not your thing then maybe it’s time to enjoy a day at the beach in Westport. Spread across nearly 600 acres of barrier beach and salt marsh, Horseneck Beach is one of the most popular recreational facilities in the Massachusetts State Forests and Parks system.

www.bristolcountychamber.org

 49


Horseneck Beach is located at the western end of Buzzards Bay. It is a sandy and southwest-facing 2-mile long beach that is breezy all year round. Horseneck provides excellent wind surfing conditions and it is a dependable respite from the sweltering inland summer temperatures. The combination of ocean beach and estuary habitat also makes Horseneck one of the premier birding locations in New England. Behind the dunes near Gooseberry Neck (a rocky headland at the eastern end of the Reservation), is a 100-site campground.

ATTRACTIONS AND MUSEUMS

The 13,600 acres Southeastern Massachusetts Bioreserve is another amazing place. The Southeastern Massachusetts Bioreserve encompasses parts of Fall River, Lakeville and Dartmouth.
