Everhart leaving mayor’s office for ABoR
Monday, December 4, 2017 by Jo Clifton
Amy Everhart, currently the director of public affairs for Mayor Steve Adler, will be joining the Austin Board of Realtors in January in a newly created position, which will coincidentally be called “director of public affairs.” Everhart said she will be managing both communications and government affairs employees in her new position. She said she had not been looking for a job but the opportunity was just too good to pass up when it was offered. Everhart worked for Mayor Lee Leffingwell for several years and
was part of supported Mike Martinez’s unsuccessful campaign for mayor in 2014. ABoR CEO Paul Hilgers is leaving the organization at the end of the year. A national search for a new CEO is now underway.
