Skiffington-Blumberg resigns from city post

Filed under: Daily News |

Colorado Springs’ manager of public communications said she was asked to resign this week.

Sue Skiffington-Blumberg joined the city’s public communication department in 2001.

“I’m accepting Sue’s resignation with sincere thanks for a job well done. Her significant contribution is recognized by city leadership, industry peers and members of her staff. We wish her continued future success,” interim city manager Steve Cox said.

In her tenure with the city, she grew SpringsTv into an award-winning cable television station and established the city’s web site as well as developed an asset management program.

The asset management program has been key to bringing the Colorado Springs Philharmonic Orchestra back to the City’s July Fourth celebration which will be held this year at Falcon Stadium. It has also provided 150 community public recycling bins through a partnership with Greener Corners.
