Mayor Sarno states, “I want to applaud MGM Springfield President and COO Chris Kelley and his team for their continued commitment, and support of our Springfield. Thank you to the Wahlberg family, especially Chef Paul Wahlberg for his belief and investment in our City. Chef Paul is so humble, genuine, and very hospitable. This is going to be a big hit here in the City. I can personally say that the Our Burger, which is Paul’s favorite, and the chili are delicious. Wahlburgers will complement my administration’s efforts to revitalizing our downtown and South End neighborhoods. Dining here will be a great time for anyone and everyone, especially for the kids. Welcome to Springfield Chef Paul and we’re looking forward too many prosperous years!”
