(BOSTON) – Representative Joan Meschino (D-Hull) joined her colleagues in the legislature this week to support the “Let’s Go Out” restaurant campaign led by the Massachusetts Office of Travel and Tourism in conjunction with the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development and industry partners.

“Let’s Go Out,” an extension of the “My Local MA” campaign, is an effort to encourage Massachusetts residents to dine at their local restaurants this summer. With the ending of all remaining COVID-19 restrictions on May 29 and as public health metrics improve across the state, the “Let’s Go Out” campaign will play a significant part in the state’s economic recovery.

The campaign celebrates the important role that restaurants play in local economies, attracting locals and visitors alike and sharing customers with nearby businesses.

“Small businesses have been hit hard by the pandemic and economic downturn,” Representative Meschino said. “As we engage in more social activities and make plans for the summer here on the South Shore, we have the chance to support our local restaurants and the staff, and other Main Street businesses in our communities.”
