Gloucester resident Christopher Sicuranza was appointed chief of staff by Salem’s interim mayor, Robert McCarthy.

Sicuranza — a former Gloucester chief administrative officer and Haverhill chief of staff — was named Jan. 4 when Salem city councilors voted McCarthy interim mayor, replacing Kim Driscoll, who was sworn in as lieutenant governor.

Sicuranza served as the CAO under former Gloucester Mayor Sefatia Romeo Theken until the end of Romeo Theken’s term in December 2021. Sicuranza held the assistant CAO position under former Essex County Sheriff Frank Cousins Jr. before his promotion when Cousins’ appointment expired.

During his time under the Gloucester CAO position, Sicuranza oversaw the management of routine operations for the mayor’s office.

In Haverhill, Sicuranza appointed Mayor James Fiorentini’s chief of staff in July 2022.

Sicuranza also previously served as the communications lead manager for the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ Business Enterprise Systems Transformation Program and was the city of Gloucester’s director of communications and constituent services.

In 2012, Sicuranza co-founded Go Out Loud, a North Shore group that focuses on LGBT support and events. He remained vice president until 2019.

A 2009 Salem State University graduate, Sicuranza in 2022 received a Master Equivalent Certificate with “Top Distinction” honors in public administration from Suffolk University in Boston.
