With Great Sadness…

sympathyThe Board of Directors of the MSICA regret to announce the passing of Sen. Robert A. Havern (Ret.) of Arlington, MA.

Known to us all as Bob, Sen. Havern was instrumental in the in 2003 in assisting our newly founded association in gaining both support and respect on Beacon Hill. Bob held a Legislative Hearing in the Gardner auditorium at the State House on December 3rd, 2003 regarding the practices of the Mass Highway Department as they related to its management of snow and ice control as well as the departments handling treatment of hired snow and ice contractors. Bob was instrumental in bringing the department to the table for contract negotiations with our group from this point on.

Our condolences are offered to the family of this fine man.
