BALTIMORE (AP) — The chief of staff for Baltimore’s mayor will be leaving her post.

Mayor Stephanie Rawlings-Blake announced Monday that Sophie Dagenais plans to depart March 21. The mayor says the search for a new chief of staff is under way.

Dagenais left law firm Ballard Spahr LLP to help manage the transition as Rawlings-Blake took office after Sheila Dixon stepped down as part of a corruption case plea deal. She says when she agreed to take on the job for a year, she never could have predicted how gratifying the experience would be.

    If it was so gratifying, then why is she leaving???? Does she see the situation as critical and gettig out while she still has her integratity.

    Nice to be able to take a job with the option of leaving it when the heat warms up & nice to have friends connected to be able to make these moves. How many millions of others out there would like to trade places with your skanky a…s!

    Really, who cares? There are more important issues going on right now. This shouldn’t even be news.

    Oh, is she moving to a state that isn’t about to add on a ridiculous gas tax to it’s already financially crippled citizens? Probably. Stephanie Rawlings-Blake is even dumber than Sheila Dixon, what a poor name they’ve both given to women in politics.
