TAMIO Teammates

Meet the people behind the new TAMIO Teammates. Each teammate works in local government and is here to assist you in their area of expertise: Social Media, Website Design, Video Programming, Marketing and Graphic Design, or Media Relations. Teammates add conversation starters in the TAMIO Facebook Group and occasionally post to our TAMIO Thoughts blog. Here are your TAMIO Teammates, along with their favorite movie quotes (hover over their pictures for the quotes):
