Mercer Island announces new permanent city manager
HUGE, HUGE congratulations to ELGL leader Julie Underwood for being appointed city manager of Mercer Island, WA. Julie has been the assistant city manager in Daly City, CA since 2014.
While in California, Julie led ELGL’s efforts in the state which resulted in California becoming one of the top five states with the most ELGL members. She coordinated a successful #ELGL16 Pop Up Conference in Menlo Park, CA, organized Supper Clubs, and mentored numerous local government professionals. In Julie’s absence, Rebecca Woodbury, City of San Rafael, will continue growing ELGL in California.
Let’s celebrate Julie’s success by reliving a few of her ELGL articles.
