Mayor Morse Announces Changes in Office Staff Text Size

Following the inauguration ceremony of his second term, Mayor Alex Morse announced personnel changes taking place within the Office of the Mayor.  His support staff will consist of Chief of Staff Rory Casey, and Mayoral Aide Tessa Murphy-Romboletti.

She was raised in Holyoke and is a product of the Holyoke Public Schools. During her time at the University of Delaware, Tessa was an intern in the office of former Mayor Michael J. Sullivan. After graduating in 2011 with bachelors’ degrees in History and Sociology, Tessa moved to Manhattan to work as the Assistant to the Directors at LeAp, an arts integration non-profit, but returned to Holyoke to work for Mayor Morse.
