South Bend Mayor Pete Buttigieg’s chief of staff has resigned and will leave the city later in June to pursue a master’s degree.
Roos has served as Buttigieg’s chief of staff for more than two years. Prior to that, she was the finance director on Buttigieg’s 2011 mayoral campaign.
“I hope I have had a positive impact and helped move South Bend forward,” Roos said. “South Bend will always be home and I look forward to following and seeing the continued success of this wonderful community.”
Roos was recently cleared in a special investigation after a complaint was filed in 2014 accusing her of having public employees work on a private project at her home, a violation of state law.
