The last day on the job for Louisville Mayor Jerry Abramson’s spokesperson Chris Poynter is tomorrow. Poynter says he’s leaving the Abramson administration for a position with democrat Greg Fischer’s mayoral campaign.
“I don’t think there is a current plan to fill my position, I think the duties here at the mayor’s office will be scattered among the existing staff,” says Poynter. “That could change in the future, but I think that’s the plan for now.”
There are only six months remaining in the Abramson administration. The mayor decided not to seek a final term, and will instead run for Lieutenant Governor.
Poynter will serve as Director of Communications for the Fischer campaign, a position in which he says he’ll also oversee policy matters. He starts the new job July 6th.
