Mayor Day hires two Deputy City Administrators

Mayor Jake Day and City Administrator Julia Glanz have selected Alison Pulcher and Andy Kitzrow as Salisbury’s new Deputy City Administrators.

In line with the Mayor’s recently adopted fiscal 20118 budget, which mandates reorganization in some areas of city government, the formerly singular Assistant City Administrator job title has been redesigned to better handle a growing workload.

“The Assistant Administrator position came into being as part of the FY ’07 budget,” Day said, “and it has been the office where the rubber meets the road on our most important fiscal and planning documents ever since.  As we have taken on more and more event planning and production, with all that is laid out in our Master Plan and with the National Folk Festival now a very big reality for us, the position’s scope of responsibility has become large enough that a second person is needed as we move forward.”

“We set a high bar for this group of applicants, and there were some very strong interviews,” Glanz said. “It’s a unique situation to have to search for two ideal candidates to fill matching positions like this, but we were fortunate enough to have met a couple of interviewees who really ‘wowed’ us.”

Pulcher and Kitzrow are well known in the community. Pulcher serves as the Communications and Special Events Coordinator for Salisbury Neighborhood Housing Services; Kitzrow is the Recreation Superintendent for the Wicomico County Recreation and Parks Department.

Pulchar’s experience is grounded in government and public relations.  Throughout her professional career, she has served as the Legislative Director for state Delegate J.B. Jennings, as well as the legal assistant for a Kansas State House Representative.

She has also served as the Military Community Liaison to the Manhattan Area Chamber of Commerce and as the Leadership Manhattan Coordinator.  Locally, she is the Race Director of the Hero Day 5k, and one of the driving forces behind the rotary Club’s “Flags 4 Heroes” displays across from Shorebird Stadium in Salisbury.

Kitzrow has worked as the Recreation Superintendent for Wicomico County since 2011 and has experience in activity planning and personnel management.  Throughout his time with the County, he has coordinated efforts within the community to encourage citizen activity and program participation. Andy has also managed multiple special events with a multitude participants. He is a Salisbury native.
