Two top aides to Baltimore Mayor Catherine Pugh who had been placed on leave by the acting mayor no longer work for the city, a city spokesman said Monday.
Lester Davis, a spokesman for acting Mayor Bernard C. “Jack” Young, said Karen Stokes, the city’s top lobbyist, and Bruce Williams, the chief of staff in the mayor’s office, were no longer employed by city government.
Davis declined to comment further on the two aides’ departures, citing legal advice not to discuss personnel matters. He said several aides from Young’s council president’s office staff and others in the mayor’s office are filling in for Williams and Stokes.
Stokes and Williams could not immediately be reached for comment.
Those three aides had been listed as board members at the Maryland Center for Adult Training, a nonprofit jobs program whose offices were raided by the FBI last week as part of an investigation centered on Pugh. But Davis has said Young had not known that the three had been connected to the investigation.
