Santa Clarita City Manager Ken Pulskamp was named President of the City Managers Department of the League of California Cities. The one-year appointment spans 2010.
During his acceptance speech, Pulskamp detailed a full work plan. As he was sworn in as President at the annual League of California Cities conference held in San Jose last week, Pulskamp acknowledged out-going President Kevin Duggan and discussed the new 2010 work program for the League’s City Managers department.
The three areas which Pulskamp plans to focus on in 2010 include pension reform, state governance, and continuation of department reforms.
Pulskamp would like to see the City Mangers Department take the lead in developing fiscally responsible solutions that are fair to employees and employers, as well as to taxpayers to deal with much-needed pension reform in California.
