    BOSTON (MyFoxBoston.com) -- Boston Mayor Marty Walsh announced several appointments to his cabinet Tuesday.

    Mayor Walsh named Joyce Linehan of Ashmont Media as his chief of policy. Linehan served on Walsh's transition team following his win in the mayoral election.

    Other key appointments include Democratic State Rep. Eugene O'Flaherty of Chelsea as corporation counsel, as well as former Menino aide and campaign field director Joe Rull as chief of operations.

    Keith Williams, currently listed on the city's website as the associate director of Neighborhood Services, was named interim director of the Office of Small Business and Enterprise.

    Boston Housing Authority Chief of Staff Trinh Nguyen has been given the title of interim director of the Office of Jobs.
