Colin Tudor has been promoted to Claremont’s interim assistant city manager. He will begin duties immediately.
Mr. Tudor will take over the position that was left vacant after Tony Ramos was promoted to city manager last month. Former City Manager Jeff Parker left Claremont for a similar position with the city of Tustin.
As interim assistant city manager, Mr. Tudor will play a key role in working with staff to develop the city’s 2-year budget plan and will be responsible for overseeing personnel, public information, risk management, and technology for the city’s Administrative Services Department.
Mr. Tudor has been serving the city of Claremont as assistant to the city manager since 2008. He came to the city of Claremont in 1998 to work in the Human Services Department. In 2006 he was transferred to the city manager’s office where he worked as a management analyst.
In addition to representing the city on the Gold Line Technical Advisory Committee and Recovery Act Funding Coordinator, Mr. Tudor recently spearheaded Claremont’s involvement in the AMGEN bicycle tour last July, for which he was recognized with the Chairman’s Award at the Claremont Chamber of Commerce awards ceremony as well as the City Manager’s Award.
Mr. Tudor’s knowledge of the city will play an integral role in his new position. Having worked on the city’s 2-year budget plan for the last 3 cycles, Mr. Tudor is a key resource for Claremont, according to Mr. Ramos.
“He has a great depth of experience,” Mr. Ramos said. “He was part of our negotiation team with the police department, and will be a great asset with that in the spring. He knows our community and understands the issues we are going through.”
Mr. Tudor will act as the city’s interim assistant city manager for the next 6 months while the city focuses on preparations for its budget plan.
