George Huynh will join Mayor Walsh’s Office of Neighborhood Services as the liaison for the Fields Corner neighborhood and Vietnamese community. A native of Fields Corner, Huynh is a graduate of Boston Latin School and Yale College. He will serve as the primary contact for constituents and businesses looking to connect with the Mayor’s Office and will facilitate the delivery of services in collaboration with City departments, the mayor’s office said in announcing the appointment.
“I’d like to congratulate George on joining the Neighborhood Services team as the liaison to the Fields Corner neighborhood and Vietnamese community,” Mayor Walsh said in a statement. “He values the department’s mission of helping residents in the neighborhood and ensuring that they have access to the virtual City services available to them, allowing the community to feel confident and connected to their local government. I look forward to him serving in this important role.”
After Yale, he taught in Boston Public Schools and worked in legal services, as he also speaks Vietnamese and Spanish. As a youth, he was active with VietAID and Dorchester Youth Collaborative. Outside the office, George enjoys playing video games and basketball.
“I am delighted and honored to serve in this role, and to work with Mayor Walsh, who shares a strong connection to Dorchester. Growing up, I often felt overwhelmed by government processes, especially because my parents experienced a language barrier as immigrants from Vietnam,” said Huynh. “I want to empower folks in the community so that they can access the resources they need to thrive and to keep Fields Corner—and Boston—lively.”
