The resignation of San Leandro City Manager Stephen Hollister was announced by outgoing Mayor Tony Santos at the December 20, 2010, meeting of the San Leandro City Council. Mayor Santos stated that he had received the letter of resignation that afternoon during a closed session meeting in which the single agenda item was the performance review of the City Manager. The resignation was accepted unanimously by the City Council.
The text of the letter was read aloud by Mayor Santos at the meeting:
I am submitting my resignation from the position of City Manager, effective upon the June 30, 2011 expiration of my contract. In the interim, I will be working with you on a transition plan. I would like to thank you for giving me the opportunity to serve San Leandro. I particularly appreciate the efforts and support of department heads and city employees. They are a dedicated and talented group. Sincerely, Stephen Hollister.
Hollister was appointed City Manager in December 2008, after John Jermanis announced his retirement in September 2008.
