County calls presser for 11 a.m.

County Administrator Janice Gilley has called her first press conference since early April. Other than Commissioner Jeff Bergosh’s virtual Coffee with the Commissioner sessions, the administrator has rarely fielded questions from the media and public.

When Inweekly had Commissioner Bergosh ask Gilley when she would hold a presser, she said when something new happens.

Three months later, “something new” must have happened.

Escambia County Virtual Press Conference is at 11 a.m. today, Friday, July 10 at 11 a.m.

“The media is invited to a virtual press conference via Microsoft Teams today on Friday, July 10 at 11 a.m. about public health and safety during COVID-19.”

Attendees may include:
Escambia County Board of County Commissioners
Escambia County Administrator Janice P. Gilley
Escambia County Public Safety Director Jason Rogers
Escambia County Emergency Manager Eric Gilmore
Escambia County Corrections Chief Rich Powell

The media may join the meeting at this link starting at 10:55 a.m. to test connectivity.

  1. It has been hours and the video still does not appear available on swaggit but is available on the county youtube channel.

    With so many ‘amazing’ new hires in Admin and HR I kind of expect TikTok to bave been the first release space.

    How many more hires will it take and at what cost will it take to get a consistent source of information in the sunlight from the county with access for all?

  2. Is the County making this available to the public for live viewing, Rick? There is no reason that the credentialed press can’t attend and Q/A with citizens having access to view. The last press conference boxed the public out. Please do what you can so Escambia and Pensacola residents can finally have some understanding of what is going on at the County straight from the horse’s mouth.
