After a year, Yvonne Wenger is out as Nick Mosby’s communications director

Soon after Wenger took the job, Mosby’s businesses and tax issues came under scrutiny and prosecutors confirmed he and his wife Marilyn Mosby were the subject of a federal criminal probe.

Yvonne Wenger, the former Baltimore Sun City Hall reporter who went to work for City Council President Nick Mosby, has left her $100,000-a-year job as his director of communications.

After just 12 months in the position, providing media strategy for an elected official who has been a headline maker since he took office, Wenger confirmed her departure in the automatic reply to emails.

“My last day in the office was December 10,” Wenger’s message says. “For all communications matters concerning the Council President’s Office, please reach out to interim director Candance Greene.”

UPDATE: According to Christian Kendzierski, executive director of communications for the Archdiocese of Baltimore, Wenger has accepted a position with the Archdiocese as director of community affairs.

Neither Greene nor Wenger replied to messages left tonight by The Brew.

Wenger’s online bio and Twitter profile still list her as working for the Council president, and she still appears to be tweeting on her former boss’s behalf.

Today she tweeted a link to a blavity.com op-ed by Mosby titled, “With American Rescue Plan Funds, Baltimore Leaders Can Confront The City’s Racial Wealth Gap.”

And yesterday, she tweeted a video of children singing outside City Hall.

“What a special night!” she wrote, touting “@Nick_Mosby’s inaugural #toydrive.”

During eight years at the Sun, Wenger began as a general assignment and then City Hall reporter during the Rawlings-Blake administration, moving later  to the poverty and social welfare beat.
