Marie St. Fleur Is Back In Boston Politics
The Haitian American Marie St. Fleur is back with an appointment to a top post in Mayor Thomas M. Menino's administration. In this new role, St. Fleur will be responsible to help the mayor better direct city resources to families with children in underperforming schools, oversee the New Bostonians Office, and improve assistance to small businesses owned by women and minorities.
After a long silence, with revelations of personal financial problems that derailed the rising star's bid for lieutenant governor, Marie St. Fleur is back and she represents proud for the Haitian community in the Boston area.
A 47-year-old mother of three, Marie St Fleur was a prosecutor. She quickly made a name for herself as a tireless advocate for Boston's largest minority communities. After stints that included the Middlesex district attorney's office and the attorney general's office, she ran for state representative, becoming the first Haitian immigrant to serve.
