Dear Jessica,

Please send our thanks to the citizens of San Ramon for allowing several of us to job share as the new City Manager. We carefully made a composite team of people expert in management, finance, IT, communications, PR, and light houses (public works). We are now prepared at far lower expense to the City of San Ramon to provide an exceptional management team and results illustrating our imagination.

We are honored,

Ralph N. Shirlet and friends

Is it just me or is it is incredible that SR says it can't find a qualified candidate for the City Manager position for less than $359,669 + benefits?

Residents of Danville should be more concerned about how much their Town Manager is being paid. According to the State Controller's Compensation Report, it is over $310K with an additional $145K for the Assistant City Manager. Since San Ramon doesn't have an Assistant City Manager that makes Danville's pay for City Managers 23% higher than San Ramon's.

Holy Mackerel!

Herb Moniz has never been the highest paid city manager in the state. Look at the link they tell you to reference. $359,669 includes benefits.... But it does sound impressive.
