Jackson Hodges acts as the City of Anniston’s Public Information Officer (PIO). Our PIO handles the following tasks:

  • Provides information on municipal services, operations, and plans to the public.

Our PIO also serves as a point-of-contact for Anniston Changers, a community service group that works to beautify our city through unified volunteer efforts. You can learn more about Anniston Changers by visiting their website.
You can also checkout our community conversation series on Facebook, entitled “The People of Anniston.” In this series, our PIO goes out on the town to sit down with some of our tremendous citizens to get their story!
