Community and Public Relations Staff Take On New Roles

Gaithersburg, MD – (February 7, 2012) The City of Gaithersburg’s Department of Community and Public Relations recently reorganized its Homeless and Community Services Division and added a new Communication Specialist position to the Public Information Office, resulting in three longtime City emyees taking on new roles within the department.

A reorganization of the Homeless and Community Services Divisions resulted in the elimination of the Community Services Director position and the reclassification of two leadership positions. Jimmy Frazier-Bey, who has over 17 years of experience with the City, will fill the Homeless Services Division Chief position; Maureen Herndon, with 13 years of City experience, will serve as Community Services Division Chief. Their tenure as division leaders begins immediately. The Homeless Services Division provides transitional housing for homeless men and women who are in recovery from chemical addiction, and assists individuals in active addiction in accessing treatment and related services. The Community Services Division implements and supports assistance programs and services, conducts community outreach, and provides education on a variety of community issues.

Amy McGuire, who formerly served as Television Productions Specialist in the Cable TV division, was appointed to the newly created Communication Specialist position within the Public Information Office. She brings more than 10 years of experience with the City into this new position, and her duties will include writing, creating electronic newsletters, use of social media outlets, and assisting in the development of new communication strategies.

“I'm so excited that three seasoned employees are being given a chance to take on additional roles within the City. It's very gratifying to be able to reward enthusiasm, expertise and competence,” said Community and Public Relations Director Britta Monaco.

The Department of Community and Public Relations coordinates outreach and engagement activities throughout the community. It is comprised of the Community Services Division, the Cable Television Division and the Public Information Office. Collaboratively, this department connects residents with services, engages residents in educational and volunteer initiatives, communicates and promotes City events and activities, and fosters collaboration and involvement. For more information please call 301-258-6310.
