Mayor Martin J. Walsh today announced the appointment of Enrique Pepen as the Jamaica Plain Neighborhood Liaison within the Mayor’s Civic Engagement Cabinet. “I am excited to have Enrique join my office and know he will serve the residents of Jamaica Plain well,” said Mayor Walsh. “Enrique has dedicated his career to helping the residents of Boston and the Commonwealth. This appointment will make sure that Jamaica Plain continues to receive excellent city services.”
As the Jamaica Plain liaison, Enrique will serve as the primary contact for constituents and businesses looking to connect with the Mayor’s Office, and will facilitate the delivery of services in collaboration with City departments.
The Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services (ONS) encourages, facilitates and maximizes citizen input and participation through service requests, neighborhood meetings, mailings and emergency responses. To report non-emergency issues to the City, residents are encouraged to connect with BOS:311 by dialing 3-1-1 or by downloading the free BOS:311 app on iOS or Android platforms.
“I am very honored to be appointed to this position by Mayor Walsh,” said Enrique. “The Mayor has worked very hard to keep Jamaica Plain the special and diverse neighborhood it’s always been and I am very excited to continue his vision for the neighborhood.”
Born and raised in Boston, Enrique attended the John D. O’Bryant school and is currently working towards his Bachelor of Arts in Law and Public Policy at Suffolk University. Prior to this appointment, Enrique worked as district coordinator for Congressman Joe Kennedy III helping constituents navigate the federal government in English and Spanish. In his spare time, Enrique enjoys walks along Centre and South Streets or practicing his photography skills.
Alexandra Valdez formerly served as the Jamaica Plain liaison, until she was named the Director of Engagement in the Mayor’s Economic Mobility Lab earlier this month.
