As Deputy Director, Duggan will oversee the operations of the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services with an aim to improve overall engagement across City neighborhoods, delivering city services, and ensuring the department’s quality of the work. He will work under the leadership of Chief of Civic Engagement, Aisha Miller and Director of the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services, Edward Mcguire III. As the new Dorchester liaison, Huynh will distribute information and facilitate the delivery of services in collaboration with City departments to Dorchester residents.

“I am proud to announce Jack Duggan as the Director Deputy of ONS and George Huynh as the new liaison for Dorchester. Both these individuals show a strong commitment to assisting their neighborhoods and our city as a whole,” said Mayor Janey. “I look forward to continuing to work alongside them as we serve the residents of Boston.” 

Jack Duggan was born and raised in Roslindale. For the last four years, he served as the West Roxbury liaison in the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services where he worked to address constituent issues and concerns. He brings to the deputy director role a deep understanding of ONS’ mission to connect residents to City services and extensive experience in public service and community engagement.

“I'm excited for this opportunity to continue to expand on the work I do for ONS in this new role. It's been a pleasure serving as the West Roxbury liaison under these past four-plus years and I appreciate all the relationships I've made,” said Duggan. “I look forward to applying my experience as a liaison to this new role and working to serve the residents of the City of Boston.”

George Huynh lives in Fields Corner where he was born and raised. At age nine, he found wonderful mentors from VietAID and Dorchester Youth Collaborative, where he learned to advocate for and support others. Huynh is a graduate of Boston Latin School and Yale College with a Bachelors of Arts in Political Science. He has taught in Boston Public Schools and worked in legal services, tapping into his ability to speak both Vietnamese and Spanish. Huynh formerly served as the Fields Corner liaison in ONS. 

“I’d like to thank Mayor Janey for the opportunity to continue serving my hometown as well as Chief Miller and Director McGuire for their steadfast support,” said Huynh. “This past year, I've enjoyed hosting virtual meetings in multiple communities while hearing from and building relationships with our diverse residents. I welcome the challenge of engaging Boston’s largest neighborhood in my new capacity—it’s simply an honor.”
