Kit Hadley named Interim PED Director

Hadley currently serves as Department Director of the Saint Paul Public Library

Mayor Chris Coleman announced today that Saint Paul Public Library Director Kit Hadley will be appointed Interim Planning and Economic Development Director while a permanent replacement for departing Director Cecile Bedor is sought.

Hadley has served as the Library Director since August 2009, after serving as the Director of the Minneapolis Public Library and the Commissioner of the Minnesota Housing Finance Agency. She will continue serving as Library Director while temporarily assuming the PED Director role, and will fully reassume her role as Library Director when a permanent PED Director replacement is hired.

“Kit has consistently shown her skill as a leader and manager in Saint Paul. With her background in housing and extensive experience in the city, I am pleased to announce she has agreed to serve as Interim PED Director as we seek a permanent replacement,” Mayor Coleman said.

Bedor’s last day at the city is May 8.
