Newton City Hall is losing one of its bright young stars.
But the city’s loss is our nation’s gain.
The personable, Newton South graduate (Class of 2013) started working for Fuller’s mayoral campaign five days after his graduation from Columbia University in 2017. He became the mayor’s executive aide when she took office in January 2018. His last day will be next Friday. He will report to Quantico to begin training to become an officer in the U.S. Marines on June 1.
“I’m definitely nervous but I’m pretty thrilled to do it,” Rivkin said in an email. “I have loved serving the city and I’m glad I get to serve the country, too.”
“Noah is capable and kind, conscientious and caring, and an impressive example of a curious and committed citizen Newton South High School helps nurture,” Fuller said Tuesday at the conclusion of her budget presentation to the city council. “Please stop by the mayor’s office from 3-4 p.m. on Friday, April 26 to wish him well.”
