Today, Dane County Executive Joe Parisi announced Carrie Springer as the County’s new Legislative Liaison. Springer has extensive experience in government relations and recently worked as the Communications Director for Governor Evers’ transition team. She is returning to work for Dane County after having previously served as Interim Communications Director for the County Executive a few years ago.
“We are excited to have Carrie come back and work for Dane County,” said County Executive Joe Parisi. “Carrie’s unmatched experience in public affairs makes her a great choice for this role, and I cannot wait to work with her on carrying out Dane County’s legislative priorities.”
For two years, Springer worked as the Strategic Communications Specialist for the University of Wisconsin—Madison. While there, she helped develop and execute strategy on the state budget process, tracked legislation, and coordinated outreach events around the state, among other duties.
Prior to Springer’s work at Dane County and the University of Wisconsin—Madison, she worked in the Wisconsin State Senate as Communications Director for the Senate Majority Leader. Springer also served for a number of years as Communications Director for Progressive Wisconsin, where she developed and implemented communication strategies around legislation for progressive issue groups and built coalitions of local governments to promote legislative initiatives.
Springer’s confirmation as the new Legislative Liaison for Dane County is pending final approval by the County Board. A resolution for her contract will be introduced at tonight’s County Board meeting and is expected to be finalized in April.
