My goal in 2012 is to preserve and promote the shoe worker era in the city of Haverhill. – Haverhill Mayor James Fiorentini “I think it's very significant that we look back to the people who really helped establish the city to make it what it is today. The history of Haverhill goes back to a significant number of immigrants from various parts of Europe, and it's important we recognize those people. The monument or memorial should be ‘more than a granite block.’” – City Councilor William Ryan
