Contact: Ryan Egan,

MARLBOROUGH – On Wednesday November 29, Mayor-Elect J. Christian Dumais announced the formation and makeup of his transition team. The 25-member transition team will serve as an all-volunteer advisory body for the Mayor-Elect in a wide variety of areas affecting the city, including community outreach, economic development, housing, recreational and green space, education, senior issues, and much more.


The transition team will be made up of a diverse group of volunteers who are Marlborough residents and business owners. Each member will represent different segments of the population. The team will include representatives from the senior community, parents, Brazilian and Hispanic communities, business owners, veterans, public library, non-profit leaders, local clergy, a west side fire station committee member, the disability community, and several at-large community representatives. “The goal of our transition team is to ensure individuals from all walks of life have the opportunity to make their voice heard while discussing Marlborough’s future. We are transitioning from the longest serving administration in Marlborough’s history. It is time we reflect on what we have done well, what can be done better, and what can be done different. I want to thank those who are willing to serve on the team for their commitment and time,” said Mayor-Elect J. Christian Dumais.


Marlborough resident and former Ward 5 City Councilor Maura Navin was named as Chair of the transition team by Mayor-Elect J. Christian Dumais. In addition to her time on the City Council, Navin held previous professional roles at the American Heart Association and WhippleHill Inc. For the last eight years she has been the CEO and Founder of LillaBlu Strategies, a wholistic marketing company that assists small businesses and entrepreneurs. Navin also serves on the Board of Directors for the Boys and Girls Club of MetroWest as Vice Chair of the AMSA Board of Directors. “Maura brings a diverse background in marketing, communications, and public service that will be invaluable to leading the committee in a variety of areas. In addition to her strong professional background, she is a resident who has a deep passion for the city and its success. I am extremely grateful to her service leading the transition team, and look forward to working with her,” said Mayor-Elect J. Christian Dumais.


While not members of the formal transition team, former Mayor Nancy Stevens and incoming Chief of Staff Ryan Egan will be assisting the team over the coming weeks.
