Update on Redwood City’s Search for New City Manager

Redwood City, CA -  October 18, 2007 - The City Council’s search for a new city manager is continuing. Seeking the applicant with the best overall “fit” with the community and City of Redwood City, the Council has decided to lengthen the recruitment process in order to pursue additional qualified candidates, who will best fit the unique philosophy, values, and culture of the community of Redwood City.

To continue the City’s work in as seamless a manner as possible, the Council has appointed Peter Ingram as Interim City Manager, who will take that role upon current City Manager Ed Everett’s planned retirement on November 25th. Mr. Ingram, the City’s Community Development Services Director, will serve as the interim city manager until the position is filled.

The community deserves a new city manager with just the right combination of skills, abilities, and talents, as well as the less-tangible attributes of personality, style, and commitment,” said Mayor Barbara Pierce. “That’s what the City Council is looking for, and we can best accomplish this by not rushing the process.” The extended recruitment period is expected to continue through early next year.
