This is good news; the more and better human connection between Community Advisory Committee and our government, the better.
Via email from Serena Gruia, Public Engagement Coordinator with Albemarle County
I am delighted to introduce our new Community Connectors, Khalilah Jones and Allison Wrabel. Starting in January, they will be staff liaisons for the Community Advisory Committees. Attached you will find “all about me” information sheets they prepared in advance of meeting you in person. The liaison for Crozet is Allison Wrabel. Allison and I will join your meeting in January.
Their role as staff liaison is a top priority. After receiving valuable input from CAC Chairs, planning staff, and the Board of Supervisors, we are charting a course to support your work and see it as a vital component of community engagement. We are looking forward to learning from you and collaborating with you in the spirit of continual improvement.
The rest of the Community Connectors’ work will involve building relationships and supporting an informed and engaged community. This will include meeting with local organizations, staffing special events, and developing & promoting materials to inform our community.
