North End Public Safety Committee Chair, David Marx, was presented with a Community Service Award by Boston Police District A-1 Captain Kenneth Fong at Tuesday’s Neighborhood Night Out event on the Prado/Paul Revere Mall. Captain Fong recognized Marx’s efforts to work with District A-1 to improve the neighborhood’s public safety and advocate on behalf of North End residents.
David Marx currently serves as a Joint Chairman of the North End Waterfront Neighborhood Council (NEWNC) / North End Waterfront Residents’ Association (NEWRA) Public Safety Committee.

“I believe in making the North End the safest neighborhood in Boston,” said David Marx. “A city is only as strong as the quality of its neighborhoods. We are fortunate to live in a true neighborhood where, given the plethora of opportunities, one can be as involved with community affairs as they want to be.”
