Communications and Public Engagement Office

Office of the County Executive​

At the recommendation of her Transition Team and to make government more open and transparent, County Executive Jan Gardner created a Communications Department to work with local and regional media, increase her outreach to the public through avenues such as social media and weekly information briefings, and inform citizens of her initiatives.     

The Communications Department works together to produce and disseminate print and broadcast information, coordinate proclamation and recognition ceremonies, notify the public during emergencies, and inform residents about the services and programs provided through Frederick County Government.  

The department includes the Director, Video Services team and the Public Affairs Specialist combined into a single unit committed to providing a bright future for Frederick County!
