BRA director on Army Reserve duty in Mideast

Expected back to office Monday

Brian P. Golden, acting director of the Boston Redevelopment Authority, has traveled to the Middle East for a brief deployment with the US Army Reserve, the BRA said Tuesday.

Golden, a lieutenant colonel who has worked as an Army lawyer, is on a weeklong training mission working with Israel and the Palestinian Authority. Last year, Golden had a lengthy deployment in the region providing training in international law regarding human rights and the use of force, said Nick Martin, a spokesman for the BRA.

Golden is working with the US Security Coordinator for Israel and the Palestinian Authority, an interdepartmental agency, in conjunction with the Defense Institute of International Legal Studies, Martin said.

The trip is part of Golden’s two-week annual commitment to the US Army Reserve, Martin said. Golden left May 29 and is expected to return to the office Monday.

Golden is a former state representative from Allston-
Brighton.

He was appointed executive director of the BRA in 2009 and became acting director in January when the former director, Peter Meade, left at the end of the administration of Mayor Thomas M. Menino.

In Golden’s absence, he directed urgent or immediate needs to Heather Campisano, the BRA’s chief of staff.
