Stephanie Cargill is the Communications Director at Stark Library, overseeing all of the internal communications as well as the Library’s traditional marketing and public relations efforts, and all digital properties. Stephanie is relatively new to the library, having recently come from the private sector. She had experience working on campaigns when she worked for a local ad agency, but it was trial by fire when she was hired mid-stream in the November 2018 campaign cycle.
Derek Gordon is the Director of Special Projects and Security at the Stark Library. In addition to his responsibilities overseeing the construction of a new Jackson Township branch and plans to renovate the remaining library branches, Derek has extensive experience in local ballot issues. Before coming to the library, he worked for the City of Canton for ten years and led three separate municipal park levy campaigns and was part of two Mayoral campaigns. He helped coordinate both of the recent Stark Library levies.
