The Engineering Center Leadership Dinner recognizes prominent regional or national leaders who are dedicated to advancing the engineering profession and the public good, as well as to raise funds to support The Engineering Center Education Trust. 


On Febuary 4, we honor Congressman Michael Everett Capuano, who  is serving his seventh term as a Representative in Congress for Massachusetts' Eighth District.  The Eighth includes Cambridge, Chelsea, Somerville and approximately 70% of Boston.  He is a member of the House Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure and the House Committee on Financial Services. 


In November of 2006, he was appointed to head the Transition by then Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi as Democrats prepared for a majority role in the 110th Congress.  In January of 2007, Speaker Pelosi appointed Mike to chair the Special Task Force on Ethics Enforcement. In March of 2008, a resolution establishing an Office of Congressional Ethics was passed, involving non-Members of the House in ethics matters for the first time in history.
Mike works for his constituents on local, national and international levels.


On the local level, as Massachusetts' only Member of the Committee on Transportation and Infrastructure, he fought to protect Massachusetts' share of federal transportation dollars. Through his efforts, Massachusetts received more than $5 billion over six years. As a Member of the Financial Services Committee, Mike succeeded in providing assistance for the development of new intergenerational housing for grandparents raising their grandchildren and he significantly expanded the number of Massachusetts citizens eligible for affordable home loans.
