Katie Ambrose to be first woman city manager

ROCHESTER — Katie Ambrose will become the first woman to serve as city manager when Blaine Cox retires in July.

Ambrose, 36, the deputy city manager and finance director for four years, was approved for the promotion by the City Council Tuesday night after the council accepted Cox’s plan to retire.

“I am honored to serve as the next city manager and to lead such a dedicated team,” Ambrose said. “The mayor and City Council have generated such positive outcomes throughout the city, and I think this is an exciting time to work together for this community.”

“She is certainly a trail blazer in that regard not just in Rochester, but also New Hampshire,” said Mayor Paul Callaghan. “She has shown that she is ready to step into the role, and as we have worked with her, we’ve seen and experienced her excellent qualifications first-hand, so no need to look further. She has Blaine’s confidence, as well as mine, and you can see by the vote at the council meeting, has their confidence as well.”
