REPRESENTING Forest Hills, Jamaica Plain
AGE 30
THEME SONG "Left-of-Centerfield" (a/k/a "Put Me in Coach")
IN HIS WORDS "I have been a community organizer for over 10 years. Whether as a labor organizer or a health-care organizer, I have always believed that bringing people together and working toward a common goal is the best way to create change."
IN OUR WORDS Felix G. Arroyo — son of Felix Arroyo, Boston's first-ever Latino city councilor — has been preparing for this moment since his days working for Roxbury Councilor Chuck Turner. But while some might find Arroyo's relationship with the indicted pol troubling, from our view he's a people-first, me-second community servant through and through. Just ask the Jamaica Plain youth baseball players who he coaches and mentors.
