November 22, 2016
Ashland City Administrator Dave Kanner has resigned from his position with the City effective November 30, 2016. The resignation, tendered at the request of Mayor John Stromberg, was accepted by the City Council at a special meeting of the Council last night.
Mayor Stromberg said, “Dave has been a strong, effective administrator, particularly in the areas of fiscal management, strategic planning, and careful attention to detail. Now, however, we’ve mutually recognized that as the City enters an era of new and different challenges, it’s time for new administrative leadership of the City.”
Reflecting on his almost-five years as City Administrator, Kanner said, “I’m proud to have helped guide the City in responding to significant management and fiscal challenges. I appreciate the support I’ve received from talented City staff and dedicated Council members. Ashland’s outstanding quality of life has become an important part of my family’s life, and we hope to find new ways to contribute to it.”
