Forest Grove City Council chooses new manager
Hillsboro native gets offer
This just in from Forest Grove City Hall:
At its regular meeting tonight, Tuesday, May 26, 2015, the Forest Grove City Council will consider a Resolution of Intent to make a conditional offer of employment to Jesse VanderZanden to become Forest Groves new City Manager.
The offer is conditional based upon a background check, which will be conducted over the next two or three weeks.
Currently, the 46-year-old VanderZanden is manager of the Fairbanks International Airport. He is married with two children and currently lives in North Pole, Alaska (honest!). Jesse is a native of Oregon and graduated from Glencoe High School. He earned his bachelors degree from Oregon State University in business administration. He worked on staff with Oregon US Senators Gordon Smith and Mark Hatfield.
I am excited and eager to work with the staff and citizens of Forest Grove, said VanderZanden when informed of the conditional offer. Mayor Peter Truax said, We are very pleased to welcome Jesse to the leadership family in Forest Grove.JW_DISQUS_ADD_A_COMMENT
