Rod Gould – City Manager of Santa Monica

In April 2012, Rod Gould was the subject of a video interview with the California City Management Foundation (CCMF) as part of their ‘Meet Your City Manager’ video series. These videos feature candid interviews with respected city managers from across California talking about the council-manager relationship, their favorite accomplishments as managers and their love for the profession.

“My favorite thing about being a city manager is seeing City employees digging in and doing their jobs really, really well. Contrary to the conventional wisdom that says [government] employees are lazy (or worse), the public employees I’ve gotten to work with over 26 years are dedicated and smart and altruistic and extremely creative.” – Rod Gould, City Manager of Santa Monica
