Community Invited to Discuss Qualifications for Redwood City’s Next City Manager
Redwood City, CA - May 21 , 2007 – One of the first tasks in Redwood City’s recruitment of a new City Manager is to bring together a variety of community members to help define and develop a profile of the ideal candidate. To do this, the City will host two community focus group workshops, seeking the public’s thoughts and input on the traits, characteristics, and talents that the next City Manager should possess:
Wednesday, May 30th, 2007
Community Activities Building
1400 Roosevelt Avenue
5:30 pm to 7:00 pm
7:30 pm to 9:00 pm
These discussions will help the City to better outline the skills, style, and experience that candidates should have in order to best meet the needs of our entire community. The focus group workshops will be facilitated by staff from Ralph Anderson and Associates, the firm that the City has hired to coordinate the search and recruitment. Interested community members are asked to RSVP to Laurel Blaemire either by phone at (650) 780-7283 or by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
In order to ensure that everyone has the opportunity to offer their valued input, community members can also visit www.redwoodcity.org/focus to provide their thoughts, ideas, and opinions on what is important to consider in the search for Redwood City’s next City Manager. Current City Manager Ed Everett announced his retirement last month after 15 years serving in the City’s top administrative position.
