BATON ROUGE – Mayor-President Sharon Weston Broome abruptly fired two of her top staffers.

Those who lost their jobs were Purchasing Director Kris Goranson and Environmental Services Director Rick Speer. It was not immediately clear what led to the firings.

Sources told WBRZ that members of the East Baton Rouge Metro Council were not made aware of the shake-up until Thursday.

"At this time we are considering administrative changes but we are unable to comment on pending or active personnel matters," Mark Armstrong, a spokesman for the city, said in a statement. "City-Parish is committed to ensuring all services continue efficiently and uninterrupted."

Goranson was responsible for managing the city-parish’s contracts. Speer’s duties included overseeing the troubled stormwater system.
