Who is The Neighborhood Guy?
My name is Stephen Puibello, originally from Cliffside Park, NJ
to Boston in 1986. In Boston I worked as Unclaimed Funds Analyst at
Pioneer Mutual Funds, Office Manager for USP Inc and also as Operations
Manager at Channel 1 Internet. In addition I write freelance, as the
"Neighborhood Guy" for Digital City Boston. In 1992 I started
Friends and Neighbors of the Back Bay NAG an online neighborhood community
I've appeared on Channel 7 News regarding the rodent problem in
the Back Bay.
I was contacted and assisted ABC PrimeTime in 1998 regarding a
news segment on Boston's Rodent Problem.
I've been interviewed on Neighborhood Network News, Cable TV
I've been featured on the Cover of the South End News October 16,
1997 "Hey Buddy Where's My Trash Can" Neighborhood NAG Demands
and Gets Higher Level of City Services!
I have been featured as well as written numerous letters to the
the Boston TAB, Globe Magazine, Globe City Weekly
I'm available to speak about Neighborhood Action Group (NAG) Tactics
as I'm 100% committed in helping all of our neighborhood groups get
services they deserve. Please email me at email@example.com
- Lobbying Director Steve Crosby of Animal Control & the
City's MIS Director to place dog licensing forms & related forms
on the city's web site. My goal is to have all dogs registered so
that the demographics from these statisics could help secure litter
baskets in the neighborhoods, as dog feces not only is messy, but
is a public health hazard.
- History in the makes. Visit the new Animal
Control page, Spring 98 page.
- Lobbying City Councilors and Neighborhood Services along with
Department Heads and Commissioners to place more litter baskets
on all major streets in Districts 1,2,7,8 & 9 (heavily populated
districts). Take a walk into Cambridge and notice Central Square...litter
baskets with tops at least 50 of them!!!
- Lobbying Neighborhood Services to enforce city ordinance 23.6
on Rummaging, as not only is this noisy at 5AM in the morning, but
also is a major health hazard for districts 2 & 8 as the strewn
trash attracts rats. Also, advise folks to seperate nickle deposit
items into clear bags as a way to stop the rummaging as well as
make it less degrading for those who rummage.
