Meet Katie, a friendly ambassador of Boston
“Katie Maraqa loves her job and appreciates the people she works with. As she walked up Winter Street toward Boston Common on Tuesday morning, she paused to say hello to two co-workers cleaning the window of Jewelry Plus with Windex and a squeegee.
‘Nothing better than that,’ she said, smiling, as she walked away. ‘Teamwork – it makes me happy.’
Maraqa and the window-washers are among 30 people recently hired to act as ambassadors for the Downtown Boston Business Improvement District, the first organization of its kind in the city. This is a busy week for everyone in the BID, as it celebrates its official launch today with an 11:30 ceremony at One Boston Place and kicks off its Stepping Up Downtown! Summer Series with events throughout the week.
