In retrospect, then-SGA president Joey Fiore said Doggett’s controversial tactics ultimately helped the students. http://asandoc.com/?dwonsnow3=%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%AE%D9%8A%D8%A7%D8%B1%D8%A7%D8%AA-%D8%A7%D9%84%D8%AB%D9%86%D8%A7%D8%A6%D9%8A%D8%A9-%D8%A7%D9%84%D9%85%D8%B9%D9%87%D8%AF&d41=7d ‘The work that Jeff Doggett did in the community was, by and large, better for students,’ he said in an interview with The News. ‘The alternative in dealing with just with the community and the city of Boston would have been much worse for students than dealing with Jeff and the police working with Jeff.’ enter site Doggett had a particularly close working relationship with Mike Ross, city council president and councilor responsible for the ordinance known as ‘No More Than Four,’ according to Johanna Sena, a director for community relations in the council [CQ]. The ordinance bans five or more unrelated undergraduate students from living in the same house or apartment. ‘[Ross and Doggett’s] relationship is nothing but a positive one,’ she said. ‘The council president knows that whenever he picks up the phone to call Jeff Doggett, he’ll expect someone at the other end that’s willing to work with him and work with the community. That’s how their relationship has always been.’
Doggett was an active contributor to the Problem Property Task Force (PPTF) since its creation, Sena said.
The PPTF is an organization created September 2006 to ‘take back the hill,’ according to a 2007 press release. It was designed to ‘curtail disruptive and destabilizing behavior by students living off-campus in the Mission Hill residential neighborhood.’ It is comprised of elected officials from area universities, representatives from the Mission Hill community, the Mayor’s Office of Neighborhood Services, the City of Boston Inspectional Services Department, and the Boston Police Department, according to the press release.’
Doggett said he will advise Mike Armini, vice president of marketing and communications [CQ], who will assist in fulfilling Doggett’s responsibilities until a replacement for Doggett is found. The Senior Leadership Committee, a group comprised of the president and six other high-ranking administrators, and a consultant hired by the university will review applicants for Doggett’s position. The process will likely take a few months, Armini said.
Doggett, the vice president of government relations and community affairs, along with the Office of Government Relations, is responsible for handling all levels of government, community groups and neighbors in ‘advancing the goals and mission of [Northeastern University],’ he said.
‘I could have stayed at the university for the rest of my career and I would have been very happy to do so,’ Doggett said. ‘I love the place. Over the course of my life, I’ve been at Northeastern longer than I haven’t been. But I really felt like it was time to get out of my comfort zone. Now it’s time to try something new.’
