Madison Mayor Paul Soglin announced today that Sally Jo Spaeni has been selected to be the next Senior Center and Services Manager for the Madison Senior Center. She replaces Christine Beatty who is retiring after 30 years at the Center.

Spaeni has been a City of Madison employee since 2001, most recently in Public Housing, working with a diverse population of residents as the Housing Site Manager at the Community Development Authority (CDA) Triangle Apartment Complex.

"I am delighted that Sally Jo will be leading the team at the Senior Center," said Mayor Paul Soglin. "Her work managing federally subsidized housing on the CDA Triangle, where 350 aging and disabled adults live, provides her with a wealth of experience."

"My experience and training will help me to ensure that the Senior Center continues to be a welcoming facility, that provides relevant services for all," said Spaeni. "I am excited to serve our aging population along with the well-established team at the Senior Center and believe that together, we can make a positive contribution to our community."

She has a degree in Human Services from Madison College and has also earned a certificate in Gerontology from the University of Central Florida.

Spaeni’s first day in her new position was December 17.
