A life-long Worcester resident, Tim was a former three-term Mayor of Worcester, New England’s second largest city. Under his leadership, Worcester experienced unprecedented progress, with $1 billion of new economic development projects, such as Gateway Park and City Square, that are helping to transform an older industrial city into one that is well positioned to lead and grow in the new economy.

Mike began his career with the City of Worcester as an assistant city solicitor elevating to deputy city solicitor in 1993 and taking on the role of Chief Development Officer in 2014. During his tenure as the CDO, he has negotiated the sale and redevelopment of the former Worcester County Courthouse, the Boys Club at Lincoln Square, facilitated the development of the South Worcester Industrial Park, the adoption of the Downtown Worcester Urban Revitalization Plan, and most recently was a key member of the City team that successfully negotiated the relocation of the Pawtucket Red Sox to Worcester.
