City of Portland, ME Communications Director
Jessica Grondin, City of Portland, ME
I’ve been with the City of Portland for five years now. As Director of Communications, I oversee all communication and marketing efforts for the city, which includes media relations, public information, website and social media management, internal communications, and digital services like 311 and See Click Fix. I’m also working as one of the tri-chairs of the City’s innovation and efficiency efforts. Prior to Portland, I served for 11 years in former Boston Mayor Thomas M. Menino’s administration working in two different city departments handling communications and media relations. In between working for the Cities of Boston and Portland, I worked in the private sector at a law firm handling marketing communications. While it was a great experience, my heart knew I needed to be back in public service.
