Saying goodbye to City Hall
Monday, November 15, 2021 by Jo Clifton
Mayor Steve Adler’s policy adviser, Ashley Fisher, has announced she will be leaving City Hall this Friday after nearly 10 years with the city. She started her city work with Council Member Bill Spelman in 2012 and later worked for District 3 Council Member Pio Renteria before a stint at Austin Resource Recovery. She also served as publisher for the Austin Monitor for several months before joining Adler’s team back at City Hall. She wrote on her LinkedIn page, “I am proud of all that we have accomplished over that time. But now, after spending most of the last decade there, it is time to see what’s next.” City Hall is also losing David Chincanchan, who has worked for Renteria for nearly seven years. He worked his last day with the city on Friday. Chincanchan told the Monitor he would begin his new job as senior policy analyst with the Workers Defense Project today, involving him in policy discussions with people in Houston and Dallas as well as Austin. We will miss them both.
