Marin, who took up the post on July 11, replaces former communications director Mario Hernandez, who was not reappointed by the new administration. Hernandez is expected to take a post teaching communications at the state’s San Nicolas de Hidalgo university.
The state congress elects new leadership every three years. Following January’s election 40 new deputies were chosen to lead the body, most of them representing Mexican left and centre-left parties Partido de la Revolucion Democratica (PRD) and Partido Revolucionario Institucional (PRI), which also dominated the prior legislature.
Marin will oversee an eight-strong social communications office, reporting to Martin Samaguey, president of the social communications committee. The committee handles communications for all activities including new legislative projects and information bulletins.
Marin will work to strengthen the image of congress amongst the public, communicate legislative agendas and manage media relations. She will work closely with Alma Espinoza, communications director for the government of Michoacan.
Prior to the appointment she was a correspondent for national radio network Acir.
