Suffolk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins held a community meeting June 19 at the Chelsea Senior Center. It is the second of four quarterly meetings that she will be holding in each of the four communities (Boston, Chelsea, Revere, and Winthrop) in Suffolk County.
Rollins, who was elected in November and became the first female to hold the esteemed position, highlighted some of her accomplishments in office during her first five months. She also explained the many functions of the DA’s Office that has 300 employees.
Rollins had several members of her team at the DA’s Office in attendance, ready to assist Chelsea residents.
Rollins thanked Councillors Leo Robinson, Damali Vidot, Joseph Perlatonda, Roy Avellaneda, and Giovanni Ricupero for their support during her campaign for office. She also thanked Chelsea Collaborative Executive Director Gladys Vega for her support.
Rollins praised Chelsea Police Chief Brian Kyes for his work in the Chelsea HUB. She said she also met with Thomas Ambrosino, “your fabulous city manager.”
Rollins also noted the outstanding work of ROCA, CAPIC, North Suffolk Mental Health, and HarborCOV in the community.
Myriam Feliz, the DA Office’s chief administrator at Chelsea District Court, also spoke at the meeting.
“The community meeting was an excellent forum for Chelsea residents to get to know DA Collins,” said Councillor-at-Large Leo Robinson. “She did a great job explaining the many ways in which she can assist our residents in the court system and in other matters.”
