The mayor has appointed Althea Marshall Brooks to serve as New Haven government’s community services administrator.

Marshall Brooks (pictured) has been serving as the head of the city’s Prison Re-Entry Initiative. Previously, she directed the anti-poverty agency Empower New Haven.

Marshall Brooks replaces Chisara Asomugha, who stepped down in August.

“As community services administrator, Marshall Brooks will be responsible for coordinating city departments and initiatives that directly impact the social well-being and physical health of New Haven residents, including the Health, Youth, Vital Statistics and Elderly Services departments,” city spokeswoman Elizabeth Benton stated in a release. “As CSA, Marshall Brooks will also oversee services to the homeless and re-entry populations, substance abuse and teen pregnancy prevention, state-administered General Assistance programs as well as the New Haven Resident Card.”

Marshall Brooks will earn $111,723.04 per year in her new position.

Great choice! Althea performed very well at
Empower New Haven and I hope that some of the
progressive, forward-looking ideas that were
generated at Empower can be realized by the
City. Good Luck Althea.
