Daaaang! Congrats to Los Angeles City Deputy Mayor Rick Cole on the new gig!
Here’s to making Santa Monica that much a cooler place to live & work:
From @lamayorsoffice @ericgarcetti: “I want to congratulate Deputy Mayor Rick Cole on his appointment as Santa Monica City Manager. Rick has led our work to reform city government, balance our budget and adopt new technology across our departments. I wish him all the best and know that Santa Monica will benefit from his talent, experience and commitment to public service.”
And says @angelenorick: “Los Angeles is on track, making real progress toward Mayor Garcetti’s vision of a data-driven culture of innovation. Mayor Garcetti’s budget was adopted unanimously with record reserves; our open data portal is now independently rated by the Open Data Census as best in the nation; we’ve launched the nation’s most ambitious and credible Sustainability Plan; and every department is implementing their own version of LAPD’s Compstat to track and spur progress on what matters most. While I’m truly passionate about government reform in Los Angeles, I’m excited about this opportunity as City Manager of Santa Monica to bring together every city department to make great places and improve the quality of life for all citizens.”
