Letter to the Editor: County has new communications manager

Listen to this post

Dear Editor:
This is a open letter to dear friends in the Colorado Department of Transportation’s Region 3 area, which includes Rio Blanco County.
I have worked with many of you over the past decade on plenty of exciting CDOT projects and news stories. So while I will greatly miss working with you, it is truly my pleasure to announce that we have added two new regional communications managers to our team.
We now have five communications managers, one per each of our five transportation regions. That means that in our expansive Region 3 (northwest Colorado, including Rio Blanco County), you will all get improved customer service provided by my new coworker, Tracy Trulove, who is a resident of Glenwood Springs.
Tracy’s local home base enables her to better travel and work in our residencies throughout the region, which now extends through Summit County. With my home base in Durango, I could only provide limited on-site assistance (thanks to a little thing called Red Mountain Pass!).
Tracy is a real asset to our team, with a great deal of public relations and media relations experience here and abroad.
As for me, I’m not moving on, but rather focusing attention fully on our southwest Colorado (Region 5) now; so I will be available to provide any assistance necessary.
It has been a pleasure working with you all. I’m sure you’ll hear from me in the future, when Tracy needs some vacation back-up support!
Best regards and happy holidays.
Nancy Shanks
Communications Manager, Region 5
Colorado Department of Transportation
