Coming and going at City Hall

Top managers, city clerk retiring; Fuller heads public works

by Daniel DeBolt

The wave of departures at City Hall continues with the retirement last week of transportation and policy manager Joan Jenkins. Meanwhile city clerk Angee Salvador and assistant city manager Nadine Levin have announced retirements in June and Mike Fuller has been named public works director after doing the job on an interim basis.

The City Council passed a resolution of appreciation for Jenkins on May 5 for her 17 years with Mountain View, which ended April 30. City manager Kevin Duggan called her an expert on transportation funding. She has been "instrumental in allowing us to get millions of dollars for grants on everything from the Stevens Creek Trail to public transportation projects" including the downtown transit hub, Duggan said. Jenkins' position is also critical in the city's efforts to advocate for the best possible plans for high-speed rail through Mountain View.

The City Council met in closed session on April 30 to discuss the recruitment or appointment from within of a new city clerk and city attorney after Michael Martello stepped down in December. Mayor Ronit Bryant said the council had nothing to report on either position this week. Recruitment has not begun for either position.

Levin's retirement means the loss of one of the city's longest serving top officials. Her position, which is now being advertised at up to $190,000 a year, will also oversee the city's employee services department.
