• Three – five years of progressively responsible public relations and media relations—printed and/or electronic--experience is desired;
• A Master’s degree in a related field, and experience working in the public sector, is ideal.
The position will report to the City Manager and will serve as a media spokesperson for the City. Residency is preferred, and a high level of community engagement is expected.
