The Good Morning North Central series is a high-profile, fast-paced and educational breakfast program geared towards executives, senior managers, professionals and business owners. Each of the programs has a business-oriented focus and features popular speakers to present on topics of interest to local businesses.
The featured speaker for the January edition is Senator Dean Tran. In his first Chamber event since winning the special election on December 5th, Senator Tran will be discussing his plans for supporting and advancing the North Central community.
Dean Tran was born in Saigon, Vietnam and emigrated with his family to the United States at the age of 4. In 1980, Dean and his family were sponsored by a Catholic priest in Clinton, Massachusetts where he called his first real home. In 1986, his family relocated to Fitchburg, Massachusetts where he graduated from Fitchburg High School. He went on to earn a bachelor’s degree from Brandeis University. In 2005, Dean became the first person of color to be elected to the City Council in Fitchburg, Ma. In 2017, Dean was elected to the Massachusetts State Senate as the first Vietnamese-American elected to the Massachusetts Legislature.
Scott Ellis from the Fitchburg Municipal Airport will also be presenting on the plans and extensions to one of North Central’s most important resources. Fitchburg Municipal Airport has a long history of supporting the North Central community, with the first flights taking off in 1929. In the last few years, the Airport has become an important part of the economic development of the community with the completion of the new terminal building and plans underway to extend the runway.
