Pittsburgh city attorney quits city government job

Pittsburgh City Attorney and Director of Legal Affairs Yvonne Hilton will leave her position with the city, Mayor Bill Peduto announced Monday.

Hilton began working with the city in August 1997. For the next 24 years, she served as assistant city attorney, assistant city attorney, and assistant city attorney. Peduto appointed her to the city’s top legal position in October 2018.

“Yvonne has been an incredible asset and a dedicated public servant for the City of Pittsburgh,” Peduto said. “She is diligent, thorough, fair and just in advising and enforcing the law. My administration has been fortunate to have a lawyer of her caliber, and we are grateful for the example she has set for the city’s legal department and municipal prosecutors around the world.

His last day with the city will be Friday.

She will take on a new role as associate attorney with the Port Authority of Allegheny County.

Hilton is the latest in a series of city employees to change jobs as Peduto prepares to leave office. City spokeswoman Molly Onufer announced her departure last week, and the city’s chief financial officer moved to a new job outside of city government a few weeks prior.
