After three years running City Hall’s social-services wing, Chisara Asomugha is stepping down as of Aug. 3.
Asomugha (pictured), a pediatrician and minister, has served as the DeStefano administration’s community services administrator since August of 2009. In that role she oversees city government’s youth, elderly, and health departments.
Asomugha said Thursday that she “can’t disclose” at this point the next position she has lined up. Asked to list the accomplishments of which she’s proudest in her City Hall tenure, she responded, “Bringing the community together around health, around gender equity, and around our youth. And the fact we can celebrate the Elm City Resident Card being here five years.”
The city has not named a replacement yet for Asomugha. Her deputy, Ronald Manning, will run the shop while a search proceeds.
