City Council Staff Director. City Stenographer. City Messenger.

Two important appointments at Boston City Council this year... Staff Director and City Stenographer. Also City Messenger. These appointments should be folks familiar with new technologies and software to advance the City Council's interactivity with the people. These appointments among the 100 or so Council staff are the go to people. Without advanced proficiencies in technology and software the appointments hold back the City Council interactivity with the people.
