Stanford moves on

Thursday, June 7, 2018 by Chad Swiatecki

Word got out early last month that Jason Stanford was stepping down from his job as communications director for Mayor Steve Adler, but the man who served as the funny bone of the @MayorAdler Twitter account was quiet about where he was headed. That ended on Wednesday, however, with the announcement that Stanford has signed on as the senior vice president of global communication for Hill + Knowlton Strategies, the Austin-based global public relations and communications firm. Stanford served in the mayor’s office for just over two and a half years, and his new role will be focused on corporate media relations for Hill + Knowlton. Stanford emphasized in his announcement that the company will not pursue business related to the goings-on at City Hall, adding that he hopes to maintain the friendships and professional relationships he made during his time as Adler’s media intermediary. It is not known if Adler has plans to replace Stanford before the mayoral election set for November.
