Erin Dady has been named the new chief of staff for St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman, replacing Sara Grewing who has become the new St. Paul city attorney.
Dady has been the city’s director of marketing, and had a big role in getting the Republican National Convention to St. Paul in 2008 and working on the city’s logistics for the event.
She grew up in St. Paul and has a rich political background: Before joining Coleman’s staff in 2006, she was a field organizer for Sen. Paul Wellstone, aide to Illinois Congresswoman Jan Schakowsky, and legislative aide and later political director for Congresswoman Betty McCollum.
Said Coleman in a statement:
“Erin has consistently proven herself to be an innovative leader with strong managerial skills. I am proud to appoint her as my new Chief of Staff. There is no doubt in my mind she is the right person for this job and am confident she will take the work being done in Saint Paul to the next level.”
