Ackerman hires "natural disasters" expert to handle her PR

Ackerman hires "natural disasters" expert to handle her PR


Some blog posts don't require much additional commentary:

The School District of Philadelphia has a new chief communications officer.

Jamilah Fraser has a background in TV and experience handling communications about natural disasters for the Federal Emergency Management Agency.

On one hand, Fraser's qualifications seem perfect for talking about Philadelphia schools:

In 2005, in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina, Fraser joined FEMA, where she produced several public-service announcements on hurricane preparedness and an instructional video for children. In addition to her work after Katrina, Fraser worked for FEMA in California, dealing with wildfires and floods.

But she's never dealt with the effects of Hurricane Arlene, which tends to leave no survivors in its wake...especially in the communications office.
