Even while running Sacramento, Ray Kerridge says he always liked what he saw in Roseville: shopping malls, auto malls - in his words, “a city on the move.”
Kerridge: “And what I liked about it was that we have a city council and staff that work very closely together, a city structure that works very closely with the business community and also the neighbors.”
When Kerridge resigned in February, he said it was difficult working with a city council that didn’t always move in the same direction. But he says he’s not comparing Sacramento to Roseville.
Kerridge: “The city of Sacramento is on its own track. And the city of Roseville is on its own track.”
Roseville’s mayor says Kerridge’s experience and vision are the perfect fit for her 118,000-resident city. Gina Garbolino says Kerridge will help the city close its $15 million budget gap and continue to grow.
