[ARCHIVED] City to Search for Next Administrator
City Administrator Emily Moon recently announced that she is leaving the City of Issaquah in August 2019 to pursue a long-held dream to travel extensively with her young family.
“There’s no tragic story here about an ending – but instead one of opportunity and new beginnings,” Moon said. “While I wish the timing was different – there are so many good things happening in Issaquah that I want to be part of – I am ready to fulfill a promise made to my family years ago, and to learn and grow through this next adventure.”
Moon joined the City in 2014 as its Deputy City Administrator. She was named Interim City Administrator in January 2018, and hired as Administrator in September 2018.
“I will forever be grateful to Emily for her outstanding leadership, which will have a lasting impact on this community for decades to come,” Mayor Mary Lou Pauly said. “While I’m sad to say goodbye to such a talented public servant, I’m thrilled for Emily to embark on this amazing adventure with her family.”
Mayor Pauly, who serves as the City’s chief administrative officer, will lead the recruitment effort for Issaquah’s next City Administrator.
“I’m thankful Emily gave us such extensive notice, which will help ensure a successful transition for our organization,” Pauly said.
More details on the nationwide search will be announced soon.
