Grover Beach Renews Tripepi Smith Engagement
Tripepi Smith began working with the City of Grover Beach in April 2020 and renewed and expanded their contract to include sales tax measure educational outreach in July 2020. Now in the new year, Tripepi Smith has renewed its contract for the first half of 2021 and will continue its work with the City under a similar scope, which includes providing article writing, social media support, e-newsletter content creation and distribution services, and additional graphic design and project-related assistance as needed.
“We are excited to continue our partnership with Tripepi Smith,” said City Manager Matthew Bronson. “We have seen and experienced the benefits of working with a firm that specializes in local government communications. Tripepi Smith has shown us time and time again what professional communications assistance can do to expand our City’s transparency and civic engagement.”
Leading the engagement is Senior Business Analyst Emily Mason, with support from Junior Business Analyst Molly Lockwood on day-to-day communications and Senior Business Analyst Melanie James on graphic design projects. In addition to the communications work previously discussed, Tripepi Smith also conducts regular online and news media monitoring, as well as tracks important social media metrics to understand how the Grover Beach community is receiving and reacting to City updates.
“It’s been a rewarding experience to spearhead our work with the City of Grover Beach,” commented Emily. “We have been involved in various City projects and priorities, like creating a fun and informative holiday mailer and helping inform the community about the Measure F-20 sales tax initiative. I am excited to continue working alongside the wonderful Grove Beach city staff!”
