Deputy City Manager Arturo Sanchez today announced his resignation from the City of Long Beach to accept a position as Assistant City Manager with the City of Sacramento.

“I want to thank City Manager Patrick H.

I have worked alongside some excellent colleagues and amazing individuals during the past 22 months.”

Mr. Sanchez is responsible for a variety of functions, including special projects, communications, government affairs and the Citizen’s Police Complaint Commission, and serves as the City’s chief liaison to the Gateway Cities Council of Governments.

"Arturo’s dedication and leadership have been instrumental to the City of Long Beach in several areas,” said Mr. West. “He has done a great job of reaching out and collaborating with the community and other stakeholders, and he will be missed.”

Mr. Sanchez was hired by the City of Long Beach in February 2015. He received his Bachelor of Arts Degree in English Literature from University of California, Berkeley, and his Juris Doctor from New College of California, School of Law. He is licensed to practice law in the State of California, and is a member of the International City/County Management Association.

Mr. Sanchez’s last day with the City of Long Beach will be January 6, 2017.
