Jacob Wessel, the Mission Hill neighborhood liaison for the City, has stepped down from that position, and will be starting as the director of the City Hall to Go program in a few weeks.
In an email blast, Wessel explained that he has come to learn a lot about the workings of the City of Boston and has been inspired by long-term residents and activists who “put in tireless hours participating in our government to improve our city.”
Wessel joined Neighborhood Services in 2015, and has previously served as research director for the Massachusetts Democratic Party and field organizer for Senator Ed Markey. He is a graduate of Tufts University.
“I look forward to continuing my work with Mayor Walsh and the employees of the City of Boston to better serve constituents and engage Bostonians with their government,” Wessel wrote.
The Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services is currently interviewing candidates to take on the role of neighborhood liaison. In the interim, call 311 in the case of any constituent services inquiries.
