Congratulations to Benjamin Kirby
This should come as no surprise. Benjamin Kirby will be incoming St. Petersburg Mayor Rick Kriseman's Director of Communications. Kirby is more than qualified for the job. From the press release.
During the Clinton Administration, Mr. Kirby served as the first Public Affairs Officer of the United States Parole Commission within the U.S. Department of Justice, where he developed the Commission’s first website. In 1998, he developed a website for the First Lady’s White House Millennium Council. He worked for more than five years serving two Drug Czars as an Administrative Assistant and Scheduler in the White House Office of National Drug Control Policy and held a variety of research and administrative positions at the U.S. Department of Agriculture and the Office of Presidential Personnel. While working for the Clinton Administration, Mr. Kirby went to school in the evening and received an undergraduate degree in Political Communication from George Mason University. He lives in Gulfport, Florida, with his wife, daughter, and son.Sadly, this means Kirby will not be blogging anymore. That is the price paid working for the man.
