Aurora spokesman Stahr resigns

AURORA — As a new director of communications takes over at the city Monday, one of the city of Aurora’s two spokesmen has left his position.

Kevin Stahr, who was hired as city spokesman in August 2010, voluntarily resigned from the post this week, city Chief of Staff Carie Anne Ergo said.

Stahr’s resignation comes as Clayton Muhammad leaves his post as East Aurora School District spokesman to join the city as director of communications. Muhammad’s first day at the city is Monday.

Ergo said the department will likely retain three positions — with two spots filled by Muhammad and longtime spokesman Dan Ferrelli. A possible downgrade in Stahr’s former position is possible, Ergo said.

“There’s still three people authorized in that department,” she said.

Stahr came to the city from a decade-long career as an editor and reporter at Suburban Life newspapers.

Stahr could not be reached for comment.
