One of ELGL’s first members Teri Bankhead (Milwaukie assistant to the city manager) is leaving the Portland area for a new position in Arizona. While this is a loss for the Portland area, maybe it’s the beginning of ELGL Arizona?
Below is a farewell note that Teri has asked for us to communicate with ELGL members and the local government community. Good luck Teri!
After eight years in the Pacific Northwest, I have an amazing opportunity to return home to Arizona. My last day with the City of Milwaukie will be April 25, 2014. I have accepted the position of the Assistant to the Town Manager of Sahuarita. It is a little (well about 26k) bedroom community just south of Tucson. I am very excited for this opportunity and looking forward to consistent days of sun and warmth.
It has been my honor to get to know you and be a part of an amazing group of talented and driven professionals. Kent and Kirsten, you have done a phenomenal job of growing this organization and bringing people together. I am proud to say “I knew them when….”
I am hopeful to get involved with the ICMA Arizona chapter and to see many of you at upcoming conferences.
All the best,
Assistant to the City Manager
