Josh Gibson

Director of Communications and Public Information Officer

Josh is the Council’s Director of Communications and Public Information Officer. He created a distinctive communications role and voice on behalf of the Council as an institution. He leads the effort to communicate clearly, frequently, and honestly the what, why, and how of Council procedure and work product.
Most famously, he overhauled the Council’s social media presence, pioneering a casual and conversational tone that drew rave reviews, leading the Washington Post to declare “In the Twittersphere, the DC Council went from dry to wry thanks to this guy.” Josh is the creator and host of the Council’s “Hearing the Council” radio show and podcast. He also serves as an informal Council historian and statehouse curator.
