Ernani DeAraujo is the new liaison to East Boston for Mayor Menino. A native of the neighborhood, DeAraujo, 28, attended Boston Latin and Harvard, and he has a law degree from Washington and Lee University. He interned at the White House for Bill Clinton and George W. Bush, and most recently he worked for the Boston law firm Foley Hoag.
DeAraujo has been meeting people who are active on neighborhood issues, and he seems enthusiastic about his new job. I wouldn't be surprised if we see him rise up the political ladder in the coming years.
