They will serve as the primary contact for constituents and businesses to connect with the Mayor's Office, and will facilitate the delivery of services in collaboration with City departments.
“I am pleased to welcome Uju and Molly to the Office of Neighborhood Services,” said Mayor Janey. “As neighborhood and community liaisons, they will play a crucial role in engaging their neighbors, especially our most vulnerable populations. I know both of these talented new leaders will serve their communities well.”

A fan of sci-fi novels and discovering activities around the city with friends and family, Onochie plans to pursue a master’s degree in Public Administration with hopes of one day creating policies to help marginalized communities.
