Sara Grewing named Interim Deputy Mayor

Grewing currently serves as Saint Paul’s City Attorney

Mayor Chris Coleman announced today that City Attorney Sara Grewing will be appointed Interim Deputy Mayor while a permanent replacement for departing Deputy Mayor Paul Williams is sought.

Grewing has served as City Attorney for the past four years, after three years serving as Mayor Coleman’s Chief of Staff. She will continue serving as City Attorney while temporarily assuming the Deputy Mayor role, and will fully reassume her role as City Attorney when a permanent Deputy Mayor replacement is hired.

“With her extended experience working with all departments within the city, Sara is the perfect person to manage the Deputy Mayor’s role as we seek to fill the position permanently,” Mayor Coleman said.

Williams’ last day at the city is April 11.
