La Cañada Expands TSA Engagement
Tripepi Smith & Associates (TSA) and the City of La Cañada Flintridge (LCF) have entered into an ongoing agreement for professional services that includes quarterly print newsletter production, social media management, monitoring of communications metrics and professional communications services. TSA has previously been engaged by LCF to perform a holistic communications assessment, social media setup and policy development, video and photographic asset production and ad hoc newsletter production. The engagement is being led by Senior Business Analyst Karalee Watson.
LCF Administrative Services Director Kevin Chun commented on this partnership, “As good stewards of the taxpayer, La Cañada Flintridge has traditionally maintained a very lean staff. Communications is a natural point to partner with a firm that specializes in communication and local government. Tripepi Smith had proven to be a good partner with the City on prior communication projects, so it was natural to extend the engagement.”
“La Cañada Flintridge is a model contract city. A full time communications operation is not economical, but it is important for transparency and public engagement reasons,” said Ryder Todd Smith, President of Tripepi Smith. “Our job is to help the City create and execute on its communication platforms resulting in education and engagement of the public.”
LCF is a community of over 20,000 residents nestled above Los Angeles at the base of the Angeles National Forest. Known for amazing homes, great schools and NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory, the City is a haven from the urban centers of Los Angeles, Pasadena and Glendale.
