Moises Lopez, Riverside’s deputy city manager, has accepted the assistant city manager’s position in Glendora.
A Riverside employee for 15 years, Lopez’s last day on the job is scheduled for June 22, according to a statement on the city’s website.
“Although I’m very excited to embark on this new chapter in my professional career, I will truly miss the Riverside community and city team I’ve grown to love,” said Lopez in the statement. “Riverside has a boundless list of accomplishments to be proud of, and I’m thankful I was able to be a part of them for so long.”
Lopez began working in Riverside in 2005, as a planning intern in the Community Development Department. From there he moved to assistant planner, associate planner, senior management analyst and intergovernmental relations officer.
He was appointed deputy city manager three years ago.
“Moises has made a significant and lasting difference in the Riverside community, and his presence will be missed by all,” said City Manager Al Zelinka in the statement.
