I received this email from Gene Albaugh:
“The City Council of Nevada City unanimously approved a contract with David Brennan to become city manager upon the retirement of Gene Albaugh, effective June 20, 2011.
“Brennan most recently served as program manager for the Sonoma County Regional Climate Protection Authority.
“He served as city manager for the City of Sebastopol, CA from August 1999 to March 2009.
“Brennan was a former assistant county administrator and then county administrator for the County of Nevada serving from July 1993 to August 1999.
“He previously served as assistant city manager in Brentwood, CA and as an administrative analyst and assistant county administrator for Calaveras County.
“David Brennan has a B.S. degree in Community Development from the University of California, Davis and a M.S. degree in Community Development with emphasis in public policy analysis from U.C. Davis.”
On paper, at least, a city manager from Sebastopol is a good match for Nevada City. The two towns have much in common, including a “progressive” bent.
My father was born in Sebastopol, and both of my parents are buried in the cemetery there. So is Charles Shulz, the famous cartoonist. It used to be a more conservative town.
