Education news and notes from Tampa Bay and Florida

A new person to talk to at the FDOE



The Florida Department of Education has a new leader in its communications department, nearly six months after Jennifer Fennell left that role for life in the private sector.

Now heading the PR charge is Erin Geraghty, who has been spokeswoman for the state's beleaguered Department of Children and Families for two or so years. Before that, the 2002 UNF grad served as a voice for the Departments of Elder Affairs and Community Affairs.

In other words, she's well versed in government speak, Tallahassee style.

In an e-mail to reporters, Geraghty promised to "continue to push openness, transparency and accountability in government." We sure hope so.
