To the Healdsburg community,
I’m reaching out to let you know that I will be leaving the City of Healdsburg to become General Manager of the Tahoe Donner Association in Truckee. My last day as City Manager will be on July 3.
This was a very difficult professional decision. Michelle and I have lived here for 15 years and we’ve raised two children in Healdsburg, a daughter now in college and a son in junior high. I have loved working for this City and working with you, our Healdsburg community members.
You care deeply about our small town, and over the years, I’ve appreciated the lively civil discourse over issues ranging from development to street paving and even, dare I say it, the roundabout. We’ve accomplished a lot together for the good of the community, and I cherish the relationships we’ve built together.
Perhaps now more than ever, strong, capable public service and leadership is needed to help us get through this latest crisis. Our City department heads and staff will continue to serve you and provide essential services and keep things running smoothly. Over the next two months, I will work diligently to tie up key projects, such as getting the City budget adopted. I will work closely with the City Council during this transition, and I have every confidence the transition to my successor will be seamless.
I will provide more information once it becomes available. In the meantime, please don’t hesitate to reach out to me with any questions.
I appreciate your citizen engagement and your continued good work that benefits everyone in Healdsburg.
Thank you very much,
- David Mickaelian
