Mayor Kristen Brown fired the Transit Director, but has refused to comment on why.

Columbus Mayor Kristen Brown has reappointed the former Director of the Department of Human Resources to help implement changes across city government. 

Arlette Cooper-Tinsley was reappointed Director of Human Resources for Columbus after working as a part-time mayoral consultant.

“I’m thrilled to have this opportunity. I have worked for Mayor [Bob] Stewart, Mayor [Fred] Armstrong, and now Mayor Brown.  And the work of personnel, all of the majors share the desire to have the best employees working for them and most effective employees working for them.  “

Cooper-Tinsley is one of the few Armstrong administration employees to be retained or brought back by Brown’s administration.  The former mayor says his one-time appointee transcends partisanship.

“She is truly a professional lady, a smart lady, and an asset to any administration,” Armstrong says.

Cooper-Tinsley has already been tasked with creating a merit-pay system across city government – the lack of which was a bone of contention for city council members earlier this year when they denied Brown the right to allocate $35,000 for bonuses to seven hand-picked city employees.
