The City of Bakersfield was introduced Thursday to its new city manager, Christian Clegg.
Clegg was selected from a pool of candidates provided by recruiter Roberts Consulting Group, Inc. He has 14 years of experience working in local government, including the past five years as the Deputy City Manager of Stockton, California.
“I am very excited for the opportunity to serve the City of Bakersfield,” Clegg said. “I have pursued professional roles that would prepare me to give my best as a City Manager. While those experiences have been rewarding, I am eager to take on this new role, while planting roots in a community that my family can call home.”
Clegg succeeds Alan Tandy, who retired on January 10, 2020 after serving in the role for 27 years.
