The City of West Sacramento has just announced that the city council has appointed Martin Tuttle, a former executive director of SACOG, as the next city manager. Here’s the text of the city press release:
“The Mayor of the City of West Sacramento, Christopher Cabaldon, announced this evening that the City Council unanimously appointed Martin Tuttle to replace City Manager Toby Ross, who will be retiring after nearly a decade of service to West Sacramento.
“Mr. Tuttle’s management leadership for the region’s 23 cities and six counties as Executive Director of the Sacramento Area Council of Governments received national recognition and wide acclaim. He spearheaded the groundbreaking Sacramento Region Blueprint, which became the statewide and national model for sustainable land-use and transportation. Mr. Tuttle then worked in the private sector at the URS Corporation and New Faze Development, before becoming Deputy Director for the California Department of Transportation (Caltrans). At CalTrans, he oversees the allocation of $1.6 billion in federal stimulus funds to over 600 local transportation agencies.
“Prior to joining SACOG, Mr. Tuttle had served as district director for the legislative district which includes West Sacramento, and as the chief administrative officer for a county transportation agency.
“‘Marty Tuttle aims high and gets the job done, which makes him the perfect fit for West Sacramento and our city’s ambitious vision,’ said Mayor Cabaldon. ‘Recruiting a manager of this caliber means that West Sacramento won’t miss a beat on the waterfront, neighborhoods, the Port, flood protection, economic development, prudent budgeting, and our other priorities.’”
“Mr. Tuttle will begin work in July.”
