Officials at the City of Redmond have accepted the resignation of city manager, David Brandt, effective August 30, 2012. Brandt has served the community of Redmond as city manager since 2009. Brandt announced he will be taking on the position of city manager in his hometown of Cupertino, California.
“It’s with mixed emotion that I leave the city of Redmond,” remarks Brandt. “Redmond is a wonderful community, and the city organization and elected leadership are amazingly talented and dedicated. I am gratified by what we have accomplished over the past three years, and am confident that the city is in a strong position to continue its positive momentum.”
“David has been an outstanding city manager for the three years he has served Redmond. Upon his arrival, he immediately demonstrated his talent as a leader,” states Mayor George Endicott. “During his tenure, he and his team have successfully stabilized the budget, hired a number of excellent managers and staff, and reorganized City Hall into a more efficient and effective organization.”
The mayor, the council and the city’s management team will work in concert over the next few weeks to create a plan of action for locating and recruiting a qualified leader to serve as Redmond’s new city manager.
