City Manager's Focus

Itís good to spend time in Upland.  As your transitional City Manager, I would like to introduce myself to say thank you for the opportunity, and though my time with this City is short, I am pleased to be the one to find and recruit your new permanent City Manager that will be able to call Upland home.  I bring with me 27 years of experience from the City of La Verne, as well as two interim assignments with both the City of La Puente and City of Irwindale.  I am dedicated to finding a fit for Upland and plan to have a City Manager in place within the next few months.


It will be a busy time for Upland, with the election taking place on November 4th, 2014.  Election season, along with new management, can mean new changes for Upland.  You have three seats up in this election.  Words of wisdom for any citizen would be to do your homework and make an informed choice.  Please get out and vote. There is nothing that can be more disappointing than low voter turnout.  Upland has great potential and I wish the best for Uplandís future.
