Yonkers Mayor Mike Spano this week announced the appointment of Lisa Reyes as the city’s new deputy communications director.

“I know Lisa will put her years of communications experience to good use,” said Mayor Mike Spano. “She will certainly prove to be an incredible asset to this city, with her diverse background, particularly as a former journalist, she will bring a fresh perspective to our communications team.”

Lisa previously served as the Communications Specialist in Westchester County, where she was the lead pitcher for the county’s “Kick COVID-19 to the Curb” public service announcement campaign, served as a liaison with public relations for the Office of Economic Development, managed the distribution of proclamations and certificates, created content for all social media platforms, and served as the county’s key communications for the Spanish-speaking community.

Prior to joining Westchester County, Reyes served as Deputy News Director for WTXL ABC 27, Apprentice News Manager for The EW Scripps Company and was a well-known reporter for News 12 Westchester for 10 years. Lisa holds a bachelor’s degree in communications and media studies from New York University.

“The City of Yonkers has been home to News 12 Westchester since its inception. I spent so much time in the community and focused on the growth, development and culture of this thriving city,” said Lisa Reyes. “I welcome the opportunity to work alongside Mayor Mike Spano and his administration and hope to make a difference by continuing to share the stories of our Yonkers neighbors and follow the evolution of the third largest city in New York.”

Reyes will support Mayor Spano’s communications office by developing and coordinating comprehensive communications programs and strategies to promote the City of Yonkers and its administration.
