I have been blogging in this space since March 2003. At that time, there weren’t nearly as many bloggers as there are today. There were no other city managers doing it.
But I’ll be winding my blog down over the next two months, because I’ll be winding my job down in Eden Prairie over that same time frame. I have accepted a new job with the City of Edina, Minnesota. I will be their new city manager, effective November 8.
I am grateful for the opportunities that I’ve had in Eden Prairie, including the opportunity to blog. It’s been a wonderful experience. I will throw a few more posts up here between now and my final day as Eden Prairie’s city manager, which is Thursday, October 28.
