Gerbracht gets new position
Monday, October 12, 2015 by Elizabeth Pagano
A familiar face won’t be spending as much time at City Hall soon. Heidi Gerbracht has accepted the position of national program director for Bright Cities, which is part of an innovative new effort called Healthy Babies, Bright Futures. In her new capacity, she will be working with cities across the country on policies and programs that will reduce exposure of children and pregnant women to damaging neurotoxic chemicals. That means Gerbracht will be leaving her position as vice president of public policy at the Real Estate Council of Austin. Prior to RECA, Gerbracht was a long-time City Council staffer, working most recently in Council Member Bill Spelman’s office.
