I come to Suisun City with four years of experience as City Manager in Clearlake, California, and nearly twenty-five years of general city government experience having worked with the City of Stockton and the County of Riverside prior to my tenure in Clearlake. I am excited to be here and I’m looking forward to working with Mayor Hernandez and the City Council to make Suisun City an even better place to live and work. I will be providing monthly updates so you can follow our progress. We are also working on other ways to keep our citizens more informed, so stay tuned.
