Kelly Madding, Ashland’s City Administrator has resigned and will be returning to her prior position with the City of Medford as the Deputy City Manager. Her last day will be April 10, 2020.
Kelly has been with the City since July, 2018. “I am very grateful to the Ashland City Council for giving me the opportunity to serve as Ashland’s City Administrator,” Madding stated. “I believe I have served the City well and gained critical experience that I will use in my position with the City of Medford.”
John Stromberg, Mayor of Ashland stated, “We have all benefited from Kelly’s time with the City and will miss her kindness, intelligence and enthusiasm for the work of local government. However, I now consider Kelly a regional asset and am looking forward to collaborating with her as the communities of the Rogue Valley become increasingly interdependent in these uncertain times".
Adam Hanks, the City’s current Assistant City Administrator will serve as interim City Administrator and Bryn Morrison will serve as interim Finance Director upon Madding’s departure.
