Woodland City Manager Paul Navazio will speak about the city’s future — finances, sustainability and the General Plan — at the 19th annual State of the Community luncheon at 11:45 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 28, at the United Methodist Church, Second and North streets in Woodland.
Navazio was appointed Woodland city manager last April. He previously served as assistant city manager in Davis, where he was hired originally as finance director in 2004.
Previously, Navazio served as the budget manager for the city of Berkeley from 1998 to 2004, and budget director for the city of Oakland between from 1992 to 1998. Prior to transitioning to local government, he worked for two years as a fiscal and policy analyst with the Legislative Analyst’s Office in Sacramento, and he began his professional career as a senior financial analyst for Hewlett Packard.
Navazio holds a master’s degree in administration (finance and public policy) from UC Davis and earned his bachelor’s degree in economics and political science from the University of Rochester.
The luncheon of soup, salad, cornbread and dessert is the annual fundraiser for the League of Women Voters of Woodland. Proceeds support the league’s voter service activities, including candidate forums, voter information materials and educational materials.
