City welcomes IT Director
The City of Lawton welcomed Gwendolyn Spencer, the City’s new Information Technology Director, on Feb. 18, 2019.
Spencer hails from Dallas and brings information technology workforce experience in the municipal government sector, as well as healthcare and education. She was selected over more than 30 other individuals to earn the position.
“I believe that all of my technical experiences, career and educational, have prepared me for this awesome opportunity,” Spencer said. “I chose the City of Lawton because of the staff and the people I met, the proximity to my immediate and extended family, and the City’s hometown ‘vibe.’”
Among her first tasks are meeting with all members of the City’s technical team, as well as City directors and management to “map out a strategy” to accomplish goals and improve service delivery.
Her hiring comes on the heels of the January Proposition passage, in which citizens voted to allot additional funding to IT upgrades and improvements for the City of Lawton.
