Congrats to former PRSA Chapter President Toni Maccarone, APR, who has been named chief of staff for Phoenix Mayor Phil Gordon.
Toni was our chapter president back in 1996 and was the 2002 winner of the chapter's Percy Award, the highest honor awarded to a member of the organization.
She and I were among a group of five who studied for our APR exam together, way back when.
It seems Toni has been at the city in various public information capacities forever - but I recall when she was an agency standout before moving into the public sector.
About his hockey-fan new-chief of staff, to Mayor Gordon, I'd say: "He shoots... and scores!!!!"
