City public communications manager submits resignation
Sue Skiffington-Blumberg, manager of the City's public communications division has been asked to submit her resignation, effective June 1, 2011, according to Acting City Manager Steve Cox.
"I'm accepting Sue's resignation with sincere thanks for a job well done. Her significant contribution is recognized by City leadership, industry peers and members of her staff. We wish her continued future success," said Cox.
Skiffington-Blumberg joined the City in June 2001 and has spent 10 years building an effective public communications program for the City.
"I'm most proud of growing SpringsTV into an award-winning cable television station, establishing the City's Web site as a transparent source of information, creating a functional culture of citizen responsiveness and developing an asset management program that will hopefully be a source of general fund revenue for years to come," said Skiffington-Blumberg.
The asset management program has been key to bringing the Colorado Springs Philharmonic Orchestra back to the City's July Fourth celebration which will be held this year at Falcon Stadium. It has also provided 150 community public recycling bins through a partnership with Greener Corners.
