The Cooper-Cain Group was honoured to be the co-sponsor of the recent Business Town meeting with the Somerville, mayor, his staff, and over 100 business owners on April 26. The event – in its tenth year – is presented by the Somerville Chamber of Commerce to provide a forum for city officials and the business community to interact, ask questions, and discuss the future of the city.
