  1. John Kiljan says:

    To say that the job of city manager is important is an understatement. The City Council has a tough choice ahead.

    For those who want to know more about the candidates before a final selection is made, there are some other links to T.O.’s article that are worth looking at as well.

    You can find many articles about Lafayette’s Gary Klaphake online. Here are two that might be relevant to Arvada:

    Arvada’s Bill Ray gives a brief autobiography at informal conference for aspiring city managers held by UC Denver. You’ll have to hunt through the video to find the relevant parts, but there are also some good insights on what the job of city manager involves and of the personal side of Mr Ray himself.
