Francis Mendoza will take over the role of Allston-Brighton liaison. He was born and raised in Connecticut, and moved to Allston to attend Boston University where he graduated with a Bachelor’s in International Relations. While there, he worked in the community as an emergency medical technician and as a tutor to non-native English speakers through the Boston University Intergenerational Literacy Program. Mendoza went on to serve as a two-time U.S. Senate intern and was then hired as a legislative aide at the Massachusetts State House. As the son of a Mexican immigrant and an Irish-American public school teacher, Mendoza has always cherished service, inclusion, and equity, and is passionate about policy and constituent services. He fell in love with Allston-Brighton and its vibrant community and is thrilled to be able to serve his adopted home.
In his free time, Mendoza works towards his goal of visiting every Boston park, while birdwatching and identifying their plants. He particularly enjoys collecting Star Wars LEGOs, listening to music, watching historical documentaries, cooking, and playing Dungeons and Dragons every Thursday with his friends
