Springfield, TN, October 25, 2019– The City of Springfield has announced that Candice Tillman has been hired as the new Public Affairs Coordinator for the city. Tillman has extensive experience in the public relations and marketing fields and most recently served as a Marketing and Public Relations Supervisor for the City of Clarksville.  Tillman has been with the City of Clarksville since 2010.

This position is brand new for the City of Springfield. As the city has grown, the Board of Mayor and Aldermen decided to establish the position in conjunction with city management to market and promote the city as well as to improve communication between the government and its citizens.

Additionally, the Public Affairs Coordinator will support economic development efforts and assist commercial and industrial constituents with needs from city government.

“We are thrilled to have Candice join us as the first Public Affairs Coordinator,” said City Manager Gina Holt. “She has been doing for the City of Clarksville exactly what we intend for this position to accomplish. We had 84 applicants and it was very competitive, but her education and experience were a perfect match for the position.”

Tillman holds a bachelor’s degree in marketing from Austin Peay State University and a master’s in business administration from Bethel College. She and her husband, Mark, currently live in Robertson County with their four children.

Tillman will begin her work with the City of Springfield on December 2, 2019.
