Mayor Domenic J. Sarno, Superintendent Daniel Warwick, Executive Director of Parks, Buildings and Recreation Management (PBRM) Patrick Sullivan, Director of Capital Asset Construction Peter Garvey, Deputy Director of Facilities Jon Carignan, Schools Chief Financial Officer Patrick Roach and Chief of Staff Tom Ashe joined state Treasurer Deb Goldberg and the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA) for a virtual meeting to offer thanks and discuss plans to advance the construction of a new Gerena School in the North End neighborhood. The new Gerena School project will bring the total amount invested by the Sarno Administration into building new schools and renovating existing schools up to $1 billion – the most in the Commonwealth.

Mayor Sarno states, “I want to thank Treasure Deb Goldberg and the incredible team at the MSBA for their continued belief and investment in our Springfield schools.  My administration is ready to go and break ground to build a brand new state-of-the-art Gerena School in our North End neighborhood.  This is all possible and thanks to our sound, prudent and sustainable fiscal management policies that have enabled us to have the highest bond rating in the city’s history, while maintaining a healthy reserve account.  I am also proud of the fact that my administration, in partnership with Superintendent Daniel Warwick and PBRM Director Patrick Sullivan, are now close to investing over $1 billion into building new schools and renovating existing schools.  The most in the Commonwealth!  Stay tuned as this important project for our teachers, students and families advances and we are able to break ground.”
