Three more public health officials will shift from Boston to state

By Stephen Smith, Globe Staff

The winds of change are already blowing down Washington Street.

Boston health chief John Auerbach, named earlier this month to be Massachusetts's public health commissioner, is taking three of his top lieutenants with him when he moves to the state agency's headquarters in Downtown Crossing. All three will occupy the same roles at the state Department of Public Health that they held at the Boston Public Health Commission.

Monica Valdes Lupi will be chief of staff; Kristin Golden will be director of policy and planning; and Tom Lyons will direct the communications office.

The moves had been widely anticipated; leaders of state agencies frequently choose to surround themselves with trusted allies, and Auerbach has long-standing relationships with all three of the officials who will join him at the Department of Public Health April 2.
