Romney Campaign at Boston Convention Center Election Night

Nov. 1, 2012

Dear neighbors,

As you may already know, former Massachusetts Governor and Presidential candidate Mitt Romney will be holding his Election Night festivities at the Boston Convention & Exhibition Center on Nov. 6.

This will likely be one of the busier events we’ve hosted in a single night, with worldwide media attention and thousands of supporters converging on the BCEC. I write this letter to inform you about the event and what impact it could have on you, our neighbors.

The event goes live at 6 a.m. on Nov. 6 and is expected to end by 2 a.m. on Nov. 7. The main Romney event at the BCEC will take place from 8 p.m. to 2 a.m. starting on Election Night. TV crews will likely still be using the facility up until about noon on Wednesday, Nov. 7.

US Secret Service, State and Boston police may require road closures around the facility at various times during the event. These closures will likely impact only the immediate roads around the convention center, but if kept in place for a period of time, they could impact traffic in South Boston and Fort Point. We are working with all parties to ensure any impact is minimal. Police presence around the building will likely be elevated during the event.

Also, we are expecting 50 to 75 satellite trucks at the event, all of which will be parked on the BCEC’s West Side Drive adjacent to the building. All should likely be gone by the end of day on Nov. 7.

Should you have any questions or concerns, I ask that you contact Robert O’Shea, the MCCA’s community liaison, at 617-954-2328 or the MCCA Public Safety Department at 617-954-2222.
