Speaker of the House Robert A. DeLeo, who has done so many positive things for the state, is receiving praise from an area businessman for his support of the film industry in Boston. The business owner said DeLeo has been instrumental in Hollywood producers wanting to film major motion pictures in Massachusetts. The shooting of movies in Boston and other communities means hundreds of jobs for people in the industry, not to mention all of the opportunities to be an “extra” in a movie.

DeLeo feels there are many benefits to having movies made in Boston, especially in the realm of promoting tourism, and we once again applaud the Speaker for being on the right side of this issue and helping small businesses and residents seeking to work in the film industry.
