Kelley was named interim manager of the Media & Community Relations Department in October 2011 and became manager of the Media & Community Relations Department on May 1, 2013. The position was later reclassified as assistant director of Media & Community Relations.

Kelley has served as the city’s deputy FOIA officer since October 2011.
