   Determined to be apart of offering solutions to overcome the continuing challenges that re-entry residence face; Tony reached out to other organizations and community advocates and formed the New Start Project’s Board of Directors. Today’s NSP board includes: Daniel Wilson (Chairperson), Nancy Griffin (Secretary), Susan Tordella  (Treasurer), Carolyn Nelson, Jeff Perry, and Cambridge City Councilor Nadeem Mazen (Honorary Member). The NSP board is deeply dedicated and passionate to reduce recidivism and reverse the detrimental impact on individuals and communities as a result of incarceration.
