(York) -- Kim Bracey, a two-term York mayor, is exchanging a city hall view for a state capital one.

She began her new role Jan. 13 at the Pennsylvania Department of Community and Economic Development.

The former mayor will be paid $94,600, an increase from her most-recent salary, which 2017 city records list as $75,000.

She could not be reached for comment Wednesday.

Bracey's position is the executive director of the Governor's Center for Local Government Services, described as a "one-stop-shop for local government officials" that provides a wealth of knowledge and expertise on all matters affecting local government operations.

As executive director, Bracey oversees administration of the center.

"As a former mayor, Kim brings uniquely valuable knowledge and experience to DCED that is critical for pushing forward Governor Wolf's efforts to improve collaboration and partnership with local governments," a statement released by a DCED spokesman read.

Bracey's time without a job didn't last long.

In November, Bracey lost a re-election bid to then-city council president Michael Helfrich. Her last day in office came before Helfrich was sworn in on Jan. 2.

Before she was first elected mayor, Bracey led York's Department of Community Development.
