City Manager Sabrina Landreth reportedly heading back to Oakland

1 min read

Inside Bay Area is reporting the Emeryville City Manager Sabrina Landreth is heading back to the City of Oakland to become their first permanent city administrator in nearly a year. On the job for just over a year and half, Landreth was apparently recruited back by new Oakland Mayor Libby Schaaf, whom Landreth previously worked with when she was a budget director. Both are native Oaklanders. Ironically, she will be replacing interim Oakland City Manger John Flores, a former Emeryville City Manager himself. Flores stepped into temporarily to replace Henry Gardner last month.

It’s a huge loss for the city as Landreth was well liked and respected within the city by staff, council and residents. According to East Bay Express, Landreth will not leave her post until Emeryville hires her replacement, although she has committed to coming to Oakland no later than July.

Mayor Libby Schaaf has selected a fellow Oakland native and former city budget director to become Oakland’s first permanent city administrator in nearly a year.

In an email to city staffers, Schaaf announced that Emeryville City Administrator Sabrina Landreth will run the city’s day-to-day affairs beginning no later than July.

“Sabrina knows and loves Oakland and has demonstrated her commitment to serving our city,” Schaaf wrote in the email. “She has a proven track record, both in Oakland and neighboring Emeryville, as a skilled and talented professional with the attitude and know-how modern city governments need to succeed in the current landscape and the future.”
