New Rockville City Manager Picked from Takoma Park

Takoma Park City Manager Barbara Matthews will be leaving to take a position in Rockville.

Takoma Park City Manager Barbara Matthews will be resigning Sept. 7 to take a position as city manager for Rockville.

Matthews leaves after eight years as Takoma Park's top administrative manager.

During her tenure, the Takoma Park Community Center Auditorium and Public Works Facility were both renovated to high standards of environmental sustainability and solar panels were installed on several city facilities, according to a Takoma Park news release.

She served as co-chair of the Municipal Revenue Sharing Task Force that examined municipal tax duplication payments in Montgomery County. On that task force she lobbied to ensure that Montgomery County paid a fair amount to Takoma Park for municipal tax duplication. Her lobbying contributed to the Montgomery County Council’s decision to allot an additional $653,000 to Takoma Park in the County’s Fiscal Year 2013 budget.

Good luck to Ms Mathews. Working for this Mayor and Council would be a real challenge.

high standards of environmental sustainability = more precious city funds wasted on foolish green initiatives. These "green" politicians are just the new face of socialism
