Kimberly Staley with Mayor Joe Ganim.

Kimberly Staley who has served as chief administrative officer for two years is leaving the city at the end of this month to become CEO of Capital Workforce Partners in Hartford. Mayor Joe Ganim announced on Tuesday that a search for her replacement is underway and will be posted on the city’s application portal later this week.

“Kimberly has done an exceptional job leading our staff and has been a true asset for our city over the last two years. We are grateful for her service and dedication. She will certainly be sorely missed,” stated Ganim in a news release.

The city’s CAO oversees all city department heads.

Prior to joining the city, Staley served as vice president and director of client services for the KRA Corporation, a workforce development company. She was hired as assistant chief administrative officer prior to her promotion about two years ago. Staley was raised in Father Panik Village and PT Barnum public housing projects.



  1. Thank you for your service to Bridgeport residents in your role as Chief Administrative Officer. It likely has been very important these past two years as the Chief Executive officer was often away from the City and/or priority City responsibilities to ALL OF THE PEOPLE. Keep growing in your vocational activities and in the respectful eyes of those who have worked with you. Please remember the youths who are walking in your footsteps decades later. Help us where you are able. Time will tell.

  2. I just voted at Thomas Hooker School in the pouring rain. Every parking space was taken with lines and very steady traffic.

    680 votes on the machine at 11:30 AM!

  3. 351 votes at Aquaculture as of Noon(more than remember). Reports of 715 votes cast at Black Rock as of 9:30am. Black rock may be Stefanowski’s strongest showing in BPT.
