The mouthpiece for indicted Councilmember Dan Halloran has quit his post, The Courier has learned.

Kevin Ryan, 37, resigned Friday as the lawmaker’s director of communications. He worked for Halloran for nearly one year.

“I have greatly enjoyed working for the City Council, especially in the unique 19th  District,” Ryan said in a statement. “I am grateful to the councilmember, my co-workers, especially my communications colleague, Victor Mimoni, the fine journalists I’ve had the pleasure of working with and the District 19 residents for making it such an exciting opportunity.”

Halloran is fighting federal charges for conspiring to get State Senator Malcolm Smith on the GOP line in this year’s mayor’s race.

His chief of staff, Chrissy Voskerichian, and his legislative director, John Mulvey, both quit in early April. Voskerichian is now running for his seat in the City Council.

The ex-spokesperson said he has taken a new job as a clerk for the city’s Board of Elections in Queens and will remain active in the GOP and Northeast Queens Republican Club.

“There’s not much more I can do here,” Ryan said, “and the chance to learn all I can about the political process is very appealing. The BOE seems like a great opportunity.”
