Former director takes Community Development position
Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry is starting the process of hiring a new director of public information with the previous director taking a new position in Community Development.
The former director, Rebecca Karcher, joined the City's Community Development staff today. She recently earned her master's degree from Indiana Tech and will be putting it to use as a grants administrator for American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funding and director of community engagement for Community Development.
In the interim, business and legislative liaison Ozzie Mitson will lead public information in the Mayor's office until a new director is appointed. Rachel Blakeman, the Mayor's public information officer, and the public information officers for other City departments will continue in their existing positions.
The City's Human Resource Department will post the position soon. All applicants should apply through Human Resources.
