Apex, NC – “Tell the good news!” That’s the directive of Apex Town Manager Bruce Radford to his newest employee. Stacie Galloway began work this month as the Town’s first Public Information Officer.
“Apex has a wonderful story to tell, and we needed someone who was focused on that task,” noted Radford. The main responsibility of the PIO is to communicate the town’s programs and initiatives to residents, businesses and the media. Galloway is the former PIO for the Town of Morrisville.
Mayor Keith Weatherly added, “Apex’s commitment to transparent government will be even further enhanced with the addition of our first Public Information Officer.”
“As an Apex resident, I’m excited to start sharing the great things happening in the town I call home,” said Galloway.
The position was made available with funds redirected from the economic development budget and a vacant Webmaster position.
