Stamey first worked as assistant corporation counsel in 1992 and 1993, then returned to the office in 2005, specializing in litigation and labor relations.

He graduated with a BA in Psychology from Syracuse University in 1983, then received his law degree from SU’s College of Law in 1987.

“With ongoing changes to the federal regulatory environment, it is critical we have someone who has a thorough understanding of rules, laws, and procedures,” Miner stated. “Mr. Stamey has the experience, talent, and understanding to ensure Syracuse is prepared to adapt to these changes, and I am pleased he will assume this role once again for the city.”

According to Miner, the appointments will be effective in January of 2017.
