Vallejo Public Information Officer Christina Lee resigns

Times-Herald - 6/7/2024

Jun. 7—Vallejo Public Information Officer Christina Lee informed the city on Thursday that she'll resign later this month to take a job at Solano Community College.

Lee has been in the position since March 2020, when she replaced Lyan Pernala, who left after about five months in May 2019. Lee will work her last day on Friday, June 21, and then become the Director of Communications at Solano.

"Making this decision was difficult, but I have ultimately decided to move on to the next chapter of my life and career," Lee said. "I have built such deep relationships within this community that I know I don't need to say 'keep in touch,' because we have never lost touch, and we never will, Vallejo."

Lee — the granddaughter of a World War II Navy veteran who served from Mare Island — was thankful for her time working as Vallejo's PIO.

"Thank you from the bottom of my heart for welcoming me with open arms," Lee said. "Thank you for allowing me to join you at your neighborhood meetings, church services and functions, ceremonies, festival committee gatherings, food banks, and, for some of you, even becoming close friends who have invited me into your homes to break bread with your families, share tears of heartbreak, and share moments of laughter and joy."

Lee said the job was often difficult, but then she would remember that her calling was to serve the community. She said she was thankful for helping start the publication Vallejo Weekly, My Vallejo.com, as well as "as a structured communication process," while also acknowledging that "that perfection has not yet been reached." She hopes that the organization will continue to strive for excellence in that field.

Prior to joining the city, Lee served as communications officer with the Napa Valley Transportation Authority.
