The Office of Communications oversees and coordinates internal and external communications from the Mayor's Office, City Council and all departments in City government. The Public Information Officer (PIO) seeks to provide timely, proactive and responsive public information while fostering a positive relationship with local and national media.
The office utilizes print, web, audio, video and social media to reach the public for dissemination of information. This office handles all media inquiries, manages and produces programming for City of Annapolis TV ( the local, non-commercial cable station) and serves as community liaison for media outreach efforts.
Additionally, the communications officer coordinates logistical requirements for media events and is the primary point of contact for local and national media, including television, newspaper, and radio.
The Office maintains 24-7 communication with the public via the city website, email, and social media to publicize information critical to day-to-day operations.
