Giffords’ spokesman takes job at community college

Rep. Gabrielle Giffords’ chief spokesman has accepted a job as an administrator at a community college in southern Arizona.

C.J. Karamargin is expected to start Aug. 29 as the vice chancellor for public information and government relations at Pima Community College.

Karamargin worked as Giffords’ communications director for four years. He served as the official pipeline for information about the congresswoman after she and 18 others were shot outside a Tucson grocery store on Jan. 8.

Jared Lee Loughner, who is charged in the shooting rampage, attended the college but was suspended over safety concerns stemming from his classroom disruptions.

The school’s board of governors must approve Karamargin’s hiring when it meets Wednesday night.

The job pays $148,000 annually.
