This will be the person who greets visitors to the 2nd floor of Government Plaza where the Mayor's Office is located.  He is also looking for an executive secretary who will handle all of his high level correspondence and scheduling. He is also planning to hire a person he's calling a "right arm". This person will help him keep track of meetings and notes and may help with news releases and communications. He is currently trying to fill all three of those positions right now. He has interviewed some people, but has not hired anyone yet.
