St. Paul Mayor Chris Coleman has appointed his chief of staff, Sara Grewing, to be the new St. Paul city attorney. She is a lawyer with lots of political experience.
She replaces John Choi, who left the job in April to focus on his election campaign for Ramsey County Attorney.
Grewing joined Coleman’s staff in 2007, after working as state director for Sen. Amy Klobuchar.
Grewing also had worked for Klobuchar as an assistant Hennepin County attorney, in the Administration and White Collar divisions, served as an attorney at Flaherty and Hood, and currently is an adjunct professor at William Mitchell College of Law. She also is a board member of the St. Paul Public Schools Foundation.
