Jay Ell Alexander is no longer the spokesperson for the City of Petersburg. She left that job last Thursday.
Mayor Howard Myers didn’t say whether she was fired or resigned. He did say he was “happy with the work” she did.
The Police Department’s Esther Hyatt will be interim spokesperson for the city.
The interim city manager, Dironna Moore Belton sent an e-mail saying since it was a personnel matter and “due to the recent sensitivity” of Alexander’s departure, no other details will be provided.
