Encinitas’ communications director resigned this week, citing employment opportunities and family obligations.Though the creation of the position by Vina and a faction of the council was viewed by many as costly and unnecessary, Medford was widely liked and respected. We wish her well in her new ventures!
Marlena Medford, who held the position that had been a point of controversy with a number of local activists questioning its need, said Wednesday that she had submitted her letter of resignation on Monday.
Medford, who was hired in December 2013 by former City Manager Gus Vina, served as the city’s spokeswoman, point of contact for the media and spearheaded a number of the city’s social media and public outreach initiatives.
