Brookline Selectwoman Jesse Mermell is joining the Patrick/Murray administration as the Governor’s Communication Director.
Mermell announced her new position in a press release on Friday afternoon. Mermell said that she will be stepping down from the Board of Selectmen effective January 14 in order to perform her duties as Communications Director without any conflict of interest.
“It has been a joy and a privilege to be a member of the Brookline Board of Selectmen for nearly six years,” Mermell said. “From maintaining the Town’s Aaa bond rating and achieving Green Communities status in Massachusetts, to bringing Hubway to Brookline and updating the Town’s Climate Action Plan for the first time in a decade, I feel a great sense of accomplishment about the work my colleagues and I have done during that time.”
Mermell said that she will miss the board terribly, but looks forward to serving Brookline in a new capacity.
