COLORADO SPRINGS, Colo. (AP) — Colorado Springs Mayor Steve Bach has added a $56,000 a year position to communicate with the public using social media.
The Gazette reported Wednesday that the new post comes at a time of staffing reductions in the city.
Bach’s office hired Laura Benjamin, president of Laura Benjamin Communications. Benjamin volunteered on Bach’s mayoral campaign and will keep operating her company while working for the city.
Cindy Aubrey remains the city’s chief spokeswoman.
