Assistant City Manager Accepts Post in Oxnard

January 08, 1998

Assistant City Manager Edmund F. Sotelo said Wednesday that he has accepted an offer to become Oxnard's city manager.

Sotelo is scheduled to meet today with Oxnard officials to work out the length of his contract, his salary and a start date. The longtime government official, who began his municipal career 30 years ago as a heavy-equipment operator in Compton, said getting the job fulfills a dream of becoming the top administrator in a city.

"It fulfills a lot of my goals," Sotelo aid. "To be the city manager of Oxnard is a tremendous achievement."

Sotelo, 52, who has worked in Pasadena for seven years, will become Oxnard's fourth city manager in 12 years. In Oxnard, he will oversee a local government with 1,000 employees and an annual budget of $120 million--less than a third of Pasadena's annual expenditures.
