A Dear John letter

Sept. 28 will be both a happy and sad day for me. Happy that I’ll start work at a larger, full-service, Northern California coastal city; sad that I will be leaving such a great Public Works Department staff: Rick Morgan, Kimberly Collins, Richard Calvin, Jed Ireland and Ed Bianchi. I will miss them. We will always be a family in every sense of the word.

And, I’ll miss all of the other city employees, too. In my 30-year career in local and state government, I have never met such a dedicated and passionate group of professionals that you have so far attracted to Malibu. They truly care and they truly try to make decisions that are in the best interests of the city. They are your most valuable resource. And, I want all of them to know that I truly respect them. I will miss them greatly.

And, I’ll miss all of the many Malibu citizens and business owners that I have worked with over the past five years, through entirely too many disasters. I have made many close friends during my brief stay in Malibu. I will miss you all more than you can imagine. I wish you all the best in the future as your new city matures. But it is time to go. So, ’til we meet again. . . .
