Some might insist that Boston city politics is a still a bit old boys network, but Daniel Arrigg Koh would disagree.

Koh is the 29-year-old Chief of Staff to Boston Mayor Marty Walsh.

He grew up in Andover, and he has been on the job for a little more than a month now, among a staff of experienced political heavyweights including former state representative Eugene O'Flaherty, Dorchester activist Joyce Linehan, and longtime advisor Joe Rull.

So you could say that Koh represents something of a youth movement in the new administration.

When we met him Thursday in his Government Center office, we talked about the potential challenge of such a young guy working with some of the old guard in City hall.
