For twenty consecutive years, North End resident Anne Devlin Tagliaferro has served as an elected member of the North End/Waterfront Neighborhood Council (NEWNC) and has decided not to seek re-election on the volunteer Council.
Known as a community activist, Anne has been labeled a professional and an extremely caring neighborhood person.
Anne has attended each NEWNC meeting with an open mind, voting once presentations have been made. She said that while she will not be a member of NEWNC, she plans to attend as many meetings as possible.
“It has been a great honor and deeply rewarding to serve this wonderful community for some 20 years as a North End/Waterfront Neighborhood Council (NEWNC) member,” Anne said. “I have decided to retire from the Council, but I will continue to stay involved and attend meetings, although I’ll be seated at a different table.”
She noted, “I have always focused on what was fair and in the best interest of our wonderful neighborhood, and I am confident my fellow Council members will continue to do so.”
“I have many fond memories of my fellow Counselors, many of whom have gone on to public and private service of the people, such as former Council member Representative Aaron Michlewitz. I am deeply grateful for their collaboration throughout the years and thankful for their continued tieless advocacy on behalf of the North End,” she said.
She added, “From the bottom of my heart, to the caring families that call the North End home, I am so very thankful for your support, your friendship and for our beautiful neighborhood in the heart of the city.”
“For as long as I can member, Anne has been a strong and steady voice on the Council, fighting for quality of life issues that affect our neighborhood,” said Representative Aaron Michlewitz. “I am proud to have served with her on the Council and proud to call her a dear friend.”
