Stockton Prepares to Hire New City Manager




The City of Stockton is seeking a new city manager to replace Bob Dies, who has announced his retirement after serving for three years.

After reviewing 63 applications for the position, the Stockton City Council will interview two finalists on Saturday, Nov. 2. That same day, a candidate will receive a tentative offer if Mayor Anthony Silva makes a nomination, and it is supported by at least three council members.

A new city manager could be introduced at the City Council meeting on Nov. 12. However, if Silva does not make a nomination, the search process will continue.

“Hiring a qualified city manager that is the right fit for a community is perhaps the most important decision that a mayor and council can make,” Silva said.

Deputy City Manger Kurt Wilson has been appointed interim city manager until a new city manager is hired.


East Oakland Organizer Needed

The East Oakland Stadium Alliance (EOSA) is seeking an Oakland-based grassroots organizer for a short-term engagement to help grow and mobilize our coalition! Comprised of local businesses, workers, labor organizations, and community members, we are deeply concerned about the Oakland A’s proposal to leave the Coliseum site in East Oakland and build a new stadium at the port. An ideal candidate has on-the-ground campaign field experience, a strong awareness of Oakland and Alameda County political figures, and deep ties to East and West Oakland communities. Being a local resident of Oakland is a plus.

Employment with EOSA is a part-time role and will last for a minimum of four months with an opportunity to extend longer. Transportation and cell phone use would be reimbursed and candidates of color are strongly encouraged to apply.

If interested, please send a cover letter and resume to Emily Penrod, For more info about EOSA, visit our website and check us out on Twitter @AllianceOakland.
