West Covina Assistant City Manager Artie Fields will be taking the top job in Salinas. I’m not sure yet what that means for the open position in West Covina.
From the Monterey County Herald
Artie Fields, assistant city manager for West Covina since 1998, is poised to take the administrative reins for the city of Salinas.
The Salinas City Council will make the official announcement at a press conference today, where Fields is expected to be present.
“He’s just wonderful,” an enthusiastic Councilwoman Jyl Lutes said. “He’s young, enthusiastic, incredibly professional, and I think he’s just the right person for the city.”
Fields will take over the post being left by Dave Mora, who has been at the helm of the city since 1990. Mora, 63, will be leaving at the end of June, although his contract stipulates he will remain on hand to help with the transition until September. Read more.
